(Newser) – North Carolina cops are looking for Ann Pettway, the woman who raised a girl stolen from a Harlem hospital at 19 days of age, and now they're armed with an arrest warrant, reports the New York Post. Pettway, a convicted embezzler on parole, has been missing ever since 23-year-old Carlina White reunited with her birth family earlier this week. "She’s officially, willfully fleeing supervision," says one cop.

Pettway's parole lasts until June 2012, and she is required to obtain permission before leaving the state of North Carolina. Also missing is Trevon Teele, Pettway's 13-year-old son who is believed to be with her.
