A woman has been charged with child stealing after a day-old baby and her teenage mother disappeared from the special care unit of a Victorian hospital.
17-year-old Amanda Clay, and her baby Phoebe, returned to the Northern Hospital on Friday afternoon, police say.
Their reappearance came shortly after police charged a 27-year-old woman with child stealing and reckless conduct.
