Baby Shaylie

Asheville police say 7-week-old baby Shaylie was kidnapped in Biltmore Park on May 9, 2019.

ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -- Police in Asheville, North Carolina are asking for the public's help finding an infant they say was kidnapped Thursday afternoon.

APD says the 7-week-old child and her mother were reportedly kidnapped some time on Thursday on Dearborn Street in the Biltmore Park area.

The mother reported they were kidnapped by two people wearing ski masks and driven away in a silver 2014 Mazda CX-5. The SUV has NC license plate EMX-5984 and was located on Grant Mountain Road in Henderson County.

The mother was able to get away from the kidnappers and is with Henderson County deputies.

Asheville police later released a photo of the baby girl, named Shaylie. APD says she was last seen wearing a pink onesie with horizontal white stripes.

Henderson County deputies confirmed they are assisting in the investigation, with units in the Grant Mountain Road area and heading in many other directions.

If you have information on where the child is, call 911 immediately.

Legitimate child abductions are incredibly rare (despite erroneous public perception.) EVERY time there is a report of an abduction, a parent is your likely suspect.


this sounds really fishy to me.


Like the TX dad.... yep
