(KSDK) - A baby missing for more than four days was found alive and well early Tuesday evening and a woman was arrested in connection with her disappearance.
Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke said Abigale Lynn "Abby" Woods -- 11-days-old on Tuesday -- was turned over to investigators near an abandoned house at the intersection of Yellow Dog Road and Highway 47 around 5 p.m. The home is about six miles south of the location where the kidnapping occurred.
FBI Special Agent Roland Corvington said Shannon Torrez and her sister-in-law Dorothy Torrez took Abby to a hospital for a check-up on Tuesday. While there, Corvington said Dorothy noticed makeup on a cap covering the baby’s head.
After discovering the makeup, Corvington said Dorothy called both her husband and Shannon's husband.
Corvington said Shannon had applied the makeup in order to conceal a light red birthmark on the baby's forehead.
When they arrived home, Shannon handed the infant to Dorothy who, along with a friend, delivered the baby to deputies.
Corvington said Shannon may have given birth, but lost the baby last Friday -- the same day Abby was kidnapped from her mother’s home just south of Highway 30.
Toelke on Wednesday said investigators are trying to determine whether Torrez was pregnant at all.
"There is speculation maybe she wasn't," Toelke said at a late afternoon news conference. There also was no sign of a stillborn baby, he said.
Investigators questioned how Shannon could have delivered her own baby and recovered enough physically to attack Ochsenbine on the same day.
Shannon was arrested Tuesday evening. She was charged Wednesday with first-degree assault, child kidnapping and two counts of armed criminal action. All four charges are felonies.
A woman who lives near the location where Abby was found said she was driving home from work when she discovered the road leading to her home was closed.
Carol Wischmeyer said she pulled up to the intersection and saw several emergency vehicles. She said she saw a man holding a baby wrapped in blankets. Wischmeyer said the man told her she couldn't go down the road.
She said she knew immediately what she was witnessing.
Abby was taken by EMS personnel to St. John's Mercy Hospital in Washington, Mo., where she was reunited with her family. She was released Tuesday night.
Tuesday marked day five of the search for the Lonedell baby. Her mother, Stephenie Ochsenbine, 21, told investigators a woman entered the home late Friday, cut her throat and stole Abby.
Investigators said Tuesday afternoon they received more than 500 tips from several states relating to Abby's abduction.
Shannon Torrez is scheduled to be arraigned in Franklin County Circuit Court on Thursday. She is being held in the Franklin County Jail on a $1 million cash-only bond.
