Baby abductions are rare and mostly take place at hospitals, according to a 2005 report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The report found that of the 230 infant abductions nationwide from 1983 to 2004 -- 116 occurred at health care facilities. All but five of those hospital-abducted babies, the report said, were later found.
