Police were combing the countryside around the northern Italian city of Parma on Friday in search of a 17-month-old boy reportedly snatched from his family's home during a nighttime robbery.
The family of Tommaso Onofrio told police they were held at gunpoint and tied up by two armed men who robbed the house and made their getaway with the baby, Carabinieri paramilitary police in Parma said.
The family's pediatrician, Gianluca Prati, told Sky TG24 TV that the boy suffers from epilepsy and must take medication regularly.
The parents are postal workers and have another son, aged 8, the news agency ANSA said.
No sign of the kidnappers had been found and the family hadn't received a ransom request, the Carabinieri said, reports the AP.
