(Newser) – Police near Fort Lauderdale say armed kidnappers abducted a baby from her home Friday night during a home invasion, reports the Palm Beach Post. A statewide Amber Alert is in place for 2-month-old Taraji Kemp, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Police in Broward County believe two men broke into the home about 11pm and took the child, who was sleeping in the same room as her mother. K-9 units failed to turn up any leads, and detectives think the men escaped in a car. "Any time a child is taken especially this young, 2-months-old, they're still in diapers, they need milk, they're sleeping constantly," says a police spokeswoman. "We definitely want to reunite this baby with their mother." (Read more kidnapping stories.)
