False kidnap call sparks police hunt

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/10/2016

Police acting on a report of a baby and its mother being abducted carried out searches at Waikato addresses before it emerged the claim was false.

Armed police searched a number of houses in Hamilton on Thursday after a call that a three-month-old and a woman had been snatched.

But both were found in Auckland and the mother was oblivious of the claims and the police search for them.

Police are talking to two men and a woman over the incident and say charges may be laid.
