BRECKENRIDGE HILLS, Mo. (AP) - A healthy baby boy abandoned in a St. Louis County apartment building has been placed in state custody while police try to learn his identity and find his parents.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the infant appears to be 4 to 6 months old and was found fully dressed, with a full bottle, in what police described as an expensive car seat.
Someone called Breckenridge Hills police after finding the baby around 5 a.m. Friday in a hallway at the Hickory Trace apartment complex.
Residents of the building told police they had never seen the infant before. Police were contacting people throughout the 10-building complex hoping for information.
