The woman charged with snatching newborn 23 years ago may have only raised the girl and someone else kidnapped her, according to her lawyer.

“We don’t deny she raised her,” said Ann Pettway’s public defender, Robert Baum. “The question is whether she was kidnapping her or whether the baby was given to her.”

Baum is looking for the woman who five winesses say was wandering around Harlem Hospital in a nurse’s uniform around the time of Carlina White’s 1987 abduction.

He said police accepted the woman’s alibi, based on when it was believed Carlina disappeared, but that the presumed time may not have been accurate.

Baum also said defense lawyers hoped to speak soon with Carlina, who returned to Atlanta after her miraculous reunion her real parents last month.

His comments came after a brief, but dramatic, court hearing at which Pettway came face-to-face with real mom Joy White for the first time since her Jan. 23 arrest.
