Two Missouri teenage girls are accused of kidnapping a pregnant teen in a plot to steal the girl's unborn baby.

Detectives say the suspects met Amanda Howard, 18, online.

Howard was nine months pregnant, looking for cheap baby clothes. The teens set up a meeting with Howard at a motel.

Police say Lauren Gash, 19, sat on the woman's stomach trying to induce labor.

The other woman, Alisa Betts, 17, reportedly got scared and called 9-1-1.
