Police are searching for a missing weeks-old newborn who is believed to be in danger in North Carolina.
The two- to three-weeks-old baby is not in the care of her mother, who investigators believe is named April Morrison, according to the Scotland County Sheriff’s Office. The mother-daughter pair was reported missing Thursday.
Described as a Hispanic female who speaks both English and Spanish, Morrison was reported to have arrived in the Richmond County area approximately 8 months pregnant, authorities said.
Morrison, whom investigators allege is operating under an alias, gave birth to her daughter recently and is believed to be staying in local motels or hotels between Richmond County, Scotland County and Fayetteville.
The child has yet to be positively identified, so police said the case is not eligible for an AMBER Alert.
