PASADENA, Md. (AP) — A woman claiming to be the mother of an infant discovered in a car seat carrier on the side of the road in Maryland has contacted authorities.
Officials with the Anne Arundel County Police Department say the three-month-old girl was found just before midnight in a scuffed carrier in Pasadena after a resident called to report the abandoned child.
Authorities say the scuff marks lead them to believe the carrier may have fallen from a moving car.
Police say a woman has contacted them, saying she is the child’s mother. Police are working to confirm the claim.
The baby was taken to a local hospital after she was discovered, and will be released to the Department of Child Protective Services.
Anyone with information about this baby found abandoned in Maryland is asked to call the Anne Arundel County Police Department at 410-222-6145.
