Police have found a newborn baby girl stolen from a crib at a government hospital in Mexico City.

Mexico's federal Health Department says the day-old 5-pound, 5-ounce baby was found at the home of hospital employee Eleonor Marin at about 4 a.m. Thursday.

The Televisa television network reports that Marin says the mother agreed to give her the baby. But mother Mayra Navarro denies that and says she does not know Marin.

The department says surveillance cameras caught Marin taking the baby from a crib next to the mother's bed at the hospital, which is one of Mexico's largest.
