Philippine authorities have charged an American woman with trying to smuggle a six -day- old infant out of the country in a bag she wore around her waist as she tried to board a flight out of the country.
The woman, the 42- year – old Jennifer Talbot, had no valid custody documents for the child but managed to make it through security and immigration before personnel at the departure gate confronted her at Manila ’ s international airport on Wednesday.
National Bureau of Investigation officials said she was “carrying an infant baby boy inside a sling bag ” as she attempted to depart for a connecting flight on her journey back to the United States .
Prosecutors charged Talbot on Thursday with human trafficking , which if convicted , could send her to prison for decades, officials told reporters at a press conference as Talbot stood by in orange jail clothes.
Investigators believe the baby , who is now in the custody child welfare services , was born to a Filipino mother in the nation ’ s south and then flown to Manila .
The exact circumstances of how Talbot came to have the baby are still under investigation , but authorities believe they have located the birth mother .
Prosecutors have not filed any kidnapping charges .
