Retiring FBI Agent Has Surprise Reunion With Kidnapped Baby He Rescued As A Rookie

August 26, 2019

FBI Special Agent Troy Sowers' colleagues surprised him at his retirement party by inviting the baby he rescued 22 years ago, who is now a Marine corporal.

In 1997, newborn Stewart Rembert was abducted from the hospital by a woman impersonating a nurse.

Rembert was found 19 hours later in a box next to a restaurant dumpster in Tacoma, Wash., by Sowers, a rookie FBI agent in his first few months on the job.

On Friday, the FBI bid farewell to Sowers, who is retiring after 22 years of service. His colleagues invited Rembert.

"It's crazy to think that without his efforts, I wouldn't even be here today," Rembert told NBC News. "I wouldn't be a Marine. My family wouldn't be the same... I'm just super excited and honored to meet this man today."

Sowers said the reunion was "one of the best surprises I've ever had."
