Search Continues For Mother Of Abandoned Baby

The search for the mother of a newborn baby found on the steps of a Boyd County Church continues.

Police want to find the woman seen in surveillance video at a nearby grocery store where she called 911.

The little boy is only two or three days old.

The mother could face criminal charges since the child was left on the steps of an empty church in 95-degree-heat.

In Kentucky, the law allows mothers to leave their newborns at police stations or hospitals without fear of prosecution.
