ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WLNS) – Authorities working to identify the body of a newborn boy found in a suburban Detroit recycling center say they’re focusing their search on part of Michigan.
Roseville police Chief James Berlin says that papers that came in before and after the baby was discovered Wednesday were from the Roscommon, Midland and Arenac county areas.
Berlin adds that investigators will seek video surveillance, for example, near where recycling containers are located.
Investigators say the child found at the recycling center was between 1 and 3 days old. Workers discovered the body bundled in cloth as it came down a sorting line. On Friday, police said DNA tests showed no link between the newborn and the Melissa Miten baby missing in the Lansing area. The Okemos woman admits to having delivered a baby boy but is not able to remember what happened to the child after he was born.
