FBI: Raleigh Woman Who Raised Stolen Baby Held In Conn.

HARTFORD, Conn. - The FBI says a Raleigh woman who raised a child kidnapped from a New York hospital two decades ago is in custody on a probation violation charge in Connecticut.

Supervisory special agent William Reiner says Ann Pettway surrendered Sunday morning to the FBI and Bridgeport, Conn., police on a warrant from North Carolina. Pettway was on probation because of a conviction for attempted embezzlement and wasn't allowed to leave the state.

She's in custody and can't be reached for comment.

North Carolina correction officials had tried to contact her Friday after discovering investigators wanted to question her in the 1987 abduction of infant Carlina White, who's now grown and was recently reunited with her long-lost family.

White has been living under the name Nejdra Nance in Bridgeport and in the Atlanta area.
