Authorities say they are searching for a 9-month-old girl who was abducted while inside a vehicle stolen in Albuquerque.
Bernalillo County Sheriff's Deputy Felicia Romero says Ariana Smith was last seen in an SUV that was stolen around 2 p.m. Monday. The maroon Acura has an Arizona license plate.
Authorities haven't released a photo or description of the child yet, but say she was wearing a New Mexico State Aggies onesie when the vehicle was taken.
Romero says the vehicle was taken by 23-year-old Leighraughnzo Benally, who has brown eyes and black hair.
Romero added that Benally is an acquaintance of the baby's mother and he allegedly took the SUV "with the full knowledge that the child was in the vehicle."
