Police Release Composite Sketch of Kidnapping Suspect

As every minute passes the situation becomes more urgent for Lubbock police to find a woman suspected of kidnapping a Lubbock newborn suffering from jaundice. Here's the latest in the search for baby Priscilla Maldonado. 

Late Monday afternoon, Lubbock police released a composite sketch of the suspect. She is white, between 30 and 40 years old, about 5-feet 6-inches tall, weighs about 140 pounds and has blonde hair. The woman told the baby's family her name was Lisa Stewart. Police believe that name is an alias.

The baby's parents, Erica Ysasago and Jesse Maldonado first met Stewart at University Medical Center. They say she posed as a nurse and asked questions about baby Priscilla. Sunday afternoon, Stewart stopped by the family's home and asked to take the baby to a relative's house, nearby. Ysasago, finally agreed, but only on the condition that she go with her. As the women walked down the street, Ysasago's son ran off and as she tended to him and  that's when the woman disappeared with baby Priscilla.

Ysasago says, "If you have a heart, please bring back my baby. She never did anything wrong to nobody and she's sick. I just want her back. I just want her back and well. I don't want nothing bad to happen to her." Priscilla's parents made that plea to the kidnapper Sunday, unfortunately, there are still no arrests.

Lubbock police tell us the parents have been very cooperative in the investigation. They say they gave Ysasago a polygraph test Monday morning. However, they are not releasing the results of that test. Lubbock police have also contacted El Paso police, Juarez authorities and border patrol in case, the suspected kidnapper tries to leave the country.

Meanwhile, police are finding more clues about the kidnapping. Monday afternoon police released pictures of a ring and a Las Vegas key ring with three keys (pictured right). The suspect apparently left those items with Ysasago as some sort of assurance the baby would be okay.

This is not the first time tragedy has struck the Maldonado family. Ysasago gave birth to her second child, a daughter, last August. Faith Maldonado was born premature at 28-weeks gestation. Faith was hospitalized until just days before her death. She died of a staff infection at two months of age.

Seven months later, on May 31st, Priscilla was born. She went home Friday, despite a case of jaundice and on Sunday she was kidnapped.

If you have any information that can help police, call Crime Line at 741-1000.
