TOWN OF BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - Federal prosecutors have charged a Colorado woman with the kidnapping of a newborn baby from Beloit.

31-year-old Kristen Smith of Denver was arrested by Iowa police after she was pulled over for questioning on Interstate 80.

Six-day-old Kayden Powell was abducted from his home in the Town of Beloit Thursday morning and was found Friday morning inside a tote bag swaddled in a blanket outside a gas station in West Branch Iowa. 

It's unclear how long Kayden was left out in the cold, but police say the baby boy appears to be in good shape.

Smith, who claims to be the baby's aunt, was arrested Thursday on an unrelated warrant in Texas.
