UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Kayden Powell -- the six-day-old baby who went missing from his home near Beloit -- was found alive-and-well this morning outside a gas station in Iowa.

Town of Beloit Police chief Steven Kopp told reporters that the infant was found by an officer checking various places near West Branch Iowa -- where a woman described as baby's aunt was stopped by police yesterday. F-B-I Acting Special Agent G-B Jones said the officer heard a newborn crying, and found Kayden wrapped up in a tote bag and blankets outside a gas station along Interstate-80 at West Branch. That was around 10:15 this morning. Officials said the child was in good condition.

Federal, state, and local officers had been looking for Kayden since early yesterday, when his mother found him missing from his bassinette at their Town of Beloit home.

Officials had earlier said that the woman who was stopped had left the home of Kayden's parents around 1:30 yesterday morning, heading back to her residence in Colorado. Kopp said last evening that she was not a person-of-interest in the case -- but she was held anyway, on an unrelated outstanding warrant from Texas. An investigation continues.
