CUMMING, Ga. (AP/WSPA) — Authorities in northern Georgia are looking for the mother of a newborn found alive in a plastic bag in a wooded area.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found the child and gave the girl first aid. She was taken to a hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Officials are asking the public to share any knowledge of a woman in the late stages of pregnancy who may have given birth to the baby. The child is currently in the custody of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services.

Cumming is about 35 miles northeast of Atlanta.
