On May 3, 1999, a band of vicious tornadoes slashed through the heart of Oklahoma. It was one of the most powerful storms to ever strike "Tornado Alley". At least 38 people died, and thousands more were left homeless. One of the memorable events from this storm was how a 10-month old infant was snatched out of her mother's arms. When Amy Cargo's home was struck by a tornado, the mother and child were sucked into the heart of the twister. Aleah disappeared, and Amy feared that her baby girl was dead. This is the story of a mother's frantic search for her child. We talk to Amy and her family, as well as the volunteer firefighter who found the baby.
