This shocking CCTV footage shows a woman posing as a nurse fleeing from a hospital with a newborn baby that she has kidnapped.
Little Pablo Alarcon was bonding with his mother Rosa in a Peruvian hospital when the woman asked if she wanted to give her child up for adoption.
The next day the woman returned to the hospital, disguised as a nurse, and told Rosa that her baby had an infection and needed to be seen by a doctor.
The new mother unwittingly handed over her son and the imposter fled from the room.
Shortly afterwards the woman was seen on CCTV running away from the hospital.
It was several hours before Rosa realised that her baby had been snatched.
"She was a tall woman with hazel hair and the first time I spoke to her was when she asked if I would be interested in giving my baby up for adoption.
"She said it was a standard question that was asked to check that the child was wanted.
"I said no of course not, and didn't think any more of it," Rosa said.
According to investigators, the prime suspect, has been identified as Ana Ramos, Pablo's father's new girlfriend.
The father, Virgilio Cuellar Alarcon, 32, split up with Rosa shortly after she got pregnant and moved in with another woman, leaving her to raise their two other children aged 12 and nine, alone.
But when Pablo was born, he turned up at the hospital, which is believed to have made his new partner jealous.
Police are investigating the incident and have confirmed that Ana Ramos has vanished and that they are looking for her and the baby.
