Investigation Continues for Left Infant

From Press Release

On September 14, 2013, at approximately 9:13 p.m. officers were dispatched to a residence in Huntington on a report of an infant being found on the front porch. Upon arrival, officers did find that an infant had been left on the residence front porch, at which time Cabell County EMS was notified and the infant was transported to the hospital for evaluation and treatment.


Officers immediately began a K-9 track in efforts to locate who may have left the infant. A witness was located and interviewed, resulting in the description of a young female with shoulder length hair, carrying a camouflage backpack walking in the area during the time the infant may have been left on the porch.
The investigation is ongoing at this time, with the pressing concern being to ensure the mother is okay and not in need of medical care. The infant is in the custody of Cabell County CPS.


Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Huntington Police Department’s Crime Hotline at 304-696-4444.
