Army officials in Texas are investigating the attempted kidnapping of a baby from the hospital at Fort Hood.

Investigators have released hospital surveillance camera photos of a female person of interest.

Officials say a woman wearing hospital scrubs took a newborn from a Darnall Army Medical Center room Monday morning, setting off the hospital's infant abduction warning alarm.

Hospital officials say the infant never left the ward and all babies were accounted for.

Army investigators aren't saying where the woman put the baby after she left the room and before she fled. Officials say the hospital was locked down, and they also notified other Central Texas hospitals to be alert for unauthorized people in maternity wards.
