DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Local hospitals are on alert after police warned them about a suspicious couple posing as parents.

Police said Misty Lynn Wallace, 38, and Walter Ray Stall, 54, came to Parkland Hospital last week, walked inside and started asking questions acting as though they were there to pick up an adopted baby. But workers at Parkland quickly surmised something was off and the couple left without incident.

Police didn’t say whether or not Wallace and Stall acted suspiciously at other hospitals, but warnings were sent out nonetheless.
