Updated 8 years ago Compiled From a Provided Press Release; Edited by HNN

Huntington Police officers on September 14 at about 9:13 p.m. found an infant on the front porch of a Huntington residence. Cabell County EMS transported the infant to the hospital.

At that time, officers began K-9 tracking to locate who may have left the infant on the porch. A witness described a young female with shoulder length hair carrying a camouflage backpack walking in the location where the infant was left.

As the investigation continues, the pressing concern is to ensure that the mother is not in need of medical care. The infant has been placed in the custody of Cabell County Child Protective Services.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the HPD Crime Hotline at 304-696-4444.
