COMPTON, Calif. (AP) – Authorities are looking for the mother of a newborn baby girl who was buried alive near a Southern California bike path.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the search for the mother continues Sunday. The public is being asked to help.

The girl, believed to be less than 36 hours old, was cold to the touch when she was discovered in Compton Friday and was hospitalized in stable condition for observation.

Angelica Blount says she and her sister were walking when they heard a sound. Blount thought it could be a wailing cat but Evangelina McCrary was sure it was a baby.

Sheriff’s deputies were called. They followed the sound to a hole near a fence that was covered with asphalt and rubble. Inside was the child, wrapped in a hospital blanket.
