Baby, Adopted Parents Reunited

Officials say the adoptive parents of a five-month-old child allegedly abducted from her Mississippi home have picked up their daughter from a child welfare office in North Carolina.

Madison Erickson was reunited with her parents yesterday, a day after authorities raided a Fort Bragg apartment to find the infant with her biological mother.

Authorities say the alleged kidnapping appeared to stem from a disputed adoption.

Police and military officials scoured the Southeast for Madison after an Amber Alert was issued Saturday.

Authorities have said two women and an armed man stormed into Jennifer and Matt Erickson's home Saturday near the Tennessee and Alabama lines, taking Madison at gunpoint.

Her biological mother, Jamie Kiefer, and a friend, Rikki Swann, were arrested.
