A week-old baby girl who went missing after her mother was shot dead has been found alive.

Police in Kansas were searching for newborn Sofia Victoria Gonzalez Abarca since Thursday. Her mother Laura Abarca-Nogueda, 27, was killed in her home.

Chief Gordon Ramsay said police received a tip-off about 4.30am Saturday that the child was in Dallas.

The police chief said finding the baby alive and healthy is "the best possible outcome to a very sad case".

Local newspaper, The Wichita Eagle, reported that Chief Ramsay said that suspects in the death of Ms Abarca-Nogueda took the child and fled to Texas, where Sofia was found.

Ramsay said two people are in custody.
