HARTFORD, CT (CBSNewYork) - When blogger Andrew Vazzano commutes from New York to Norwalk, he snaps photos of interesting people riding the Metro-North train.

WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau On The Story


Wednesday night, he spotted a woman with her baby.

Andrew says there was just something different about the woman.

“This woman got on at South Norwalk and she was in a huff. She was sweating. Her eyes were bulging out of her head. She had a diamond ring tattooed on her chest you could see from her shirt being pulled down a little bit,” Vazzano told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau. “She seemed very odd, unique, a little crazy maybe, and she had her baby with her. I though that was sort of a weird dichotomy. She didn’t look like she was a mother.”

Andrew Vazzano posted this photo on his blog.

It turns out it matched a police flier of a missing woman with her baby.

“I took the picture for my blog, not thinking anything of it and the next day I’m helping out in missing persons investigation. That’s just very strange,” he said.

The Stamford advocate reports that police caught up with the woman and her infant child at a hotel in Norwalk and the state has taken custody of the child.
