MONTREAL (AP) - The mother of a one-day-old infant snatched from a Quebec hospital is thanking the people who hunted down the alleged kidnapper following a Facebook post.

Police issued an Amber Alert Monday night after the baby was abducted from the mother's hospital room by a woman who claimed she needed to weigh the child.

Local residents saw a Facebook post that included a security-camera photo of the suspect and a description of her car, and they led police to the woman's home.

Officers found the baby unharmed three hours after the abduction.
