Authorities in Arizona found an abandoned newborn baby inside a backpack outside grocery store parking lot.
According to the Tempe Police Department, the girl was found Sunday evening in a shopping cart outside a local grocery store. Police say after she was discovered with a blanket inside a Jonas Brothers backpack, she was taken to an area hospital.
Despite the 103-degree temperatures outside, the infant is reportedly in good health and has been placed in foster care. FOX News affiliate, KTUV report that police believe the girl was born within 24 hours of being found. According to the good Samaritan that found her, she had a portion of the umbilical cord still attached.
With safe haven laws across the country, Arizona allows a mother to leave her newborn baby at fire departments or hospitals without fear of criminal charges.
A photo of the baby was posted on the Tempe Police Department Facebook Wednesday, along with a photo of the Jonas Brothers backpack in which she was found.
“If you have information about this newborn’s identity, the identity of her parents or recognize this backpack police are asking you to please call Tempe Police at 480-350-8311,” the statement reads.
