Body Search Abandoned

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Police say they've stopped searching for the remains of a Jersey City baby thrown out in a hospital's trash.

Police have been looking for the body of Bashere Moyd Jr. since Jan. 2, when a funeral home worker who went to pick it up at Christ Hospital in Jersey City was told that it was missing.

Police say the body was thrown away with the hospital's trash sometime between Dec. 21 and Jan. 2 and may have been hauled by
train to near Ashland, Ky.

No evidence of criminal wrongdoing was found by police.

Jersey City police chief Thomas Comey says the search was called off because it was "a Herculean undertaking" with little chance of finding the tiny body.

Hospital officials say the baby was delivered stillborn on Dec. 21. The mother initially said the child was born alive.
