Police: Deceased infant found in Port JervisPosted: Updated:
Police say a deceased infant was discovered Tuesday night in Port Jervis.
The infant was found just after 10:15 p.m. on the side of the road along Hornbeck Avenue.
A woman who lives in the area and says she called for help told News 12 by phone that her teenage children found the baby first, thought it was a doll and asked her to come outside to be sure.
She says the newborn was dead in the fetal position with the umbilical cord still attached when she called for help.
The woman who found the child says police told her the newborn was left outside for about an hour before the infant was found.
Police have identified the mother of the child and she has been interviewed. No charges have been filed, according to police. The mother's name is not being released.
