WICHITA, Kan. (AP)  Police in Kansas say a week-old newborn girl who went missing after her mother was shot to death has been found alive in Dallas. The Wichita Eagle reports that Chief Gordon Ramsay says that two suspects in the death of 27-year-old Laura Abarca-Nogueda took the child and fled to Texas, where Sophia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca was found safe. Police and the FBI had been looking for the child since Thursday. Ramsay said law enforcement received a tip early today (SAT) that the child was in Dallas. The police chief also said that finding the girl alive and healthy is "the best possible outcome to a very sad case."
