Westfield baby found safe with mother in Virginia after Amber Alert

State Police spokesman David Procopio said Wednesday afternoon that 28-year-old Cheryl Kozaczek who doesn’t have custody of the baby, was arrested on Interstate 95 in Waverly, Va. She’s facing Massachusetts charges including kidnapping.

Procopio said the mother apparently left Westfield around 1 a.m. with 3-month-old Gaebria Kozaczek. He said Cheryl Kozaczek’s mother is the baby’s legal guardian.

He said a state police network was able to track Kozaczek through Maryland to the town south of Richmond where she was arrested. It’s not immediately known who is representing her.

Procopio said family members gave police “credible” information the baby might be in danger. He said police don’t know why the mother headed south.
