Missing baby returned safely to mother after phone tip

December 27, 1992

A 5-month-old West Baltimore boy believed to have been abducted by his baby sitter early Thursday is healthy and safe, city police reported last night.

Anthony Fitzgerald, of the 500 block of North Carey Street, was returned to his mother last night after being located by authorities, police said.

The baby, who was believed to have been taken from the home by a young woman known to his mother, Stephanie Fitzgerald, only as "Kitten," was located after an unidentified woman called authorities to say the sitter had left the infant with another woman.

Police took the boy to University Hospital for a routine checkup.

They were questioning several people last night in connection with the apparent abduction, homicide detectives reported.

Ms. Fitzgerald had posted fliers in her neighborhood seeking clues about the baby's disappearance.
