BELOIT, WI -

Police say a newborn missing from a southern Wisconsin home has been found alive at a gas station in eastern Iowa.

Town of Beloit Police Chief Steven Kopp says the nearly week-old baby was discovered by an officer checking along an interstate near West Branch on Friday morning.

FBI acting special agent G.B. Jones said at a news conference the officer heard the newborn crying and discovered the child swaddled in a tote bag outside a gas station. Authorities say the child appears to be in good condition.

Federal, state and local law enforcement officers had been looking for the baby since early Thursday when his mother discovered him missing from a bassinette in a Town of Beloit home.

UPDATED AT 4:23 p.m.

Federal prosecutors have charged a Denver woman with kidnapping a newborn from a southern Wisconsin home.

U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil filed the charge against Kristin Smith on Friday afternoon, hours after an Iowa police chief discovered the nearly week-old Kayden Powell alive and well in a plastic storage bin outside a West Branch, Iowa, gas station.

The newborn disappeared from the Town of Beloit house where he was staying with his mother early Thursday morning. Police arrested Smith hours later at a gas station about a half-mile from the station where the newborn was found.

Smith faces life in prison if she's convicted.
