Baby, abducted last Thursday when he was 23 days old, was found in basement flat near Tavarez home in Manhattan's Upper West Side. NEW YORK (AP) Little John Tavarez, victim of New York's second baby kidnaping within a month, Ayas found early today in the Manhattan basement apartment of a Puerto Rican couple a few blocks from the site of the abduc- tion last Thursday. The month-old boy was taken to a hospital with bron- chitis and inflammation of the small intestine. He had been suffering from a cold when kidnaped.
