Sheriff's Office searching for mother of newborn

This morning someone left a new born infant at Upstate Carolina Medical Center.

The female baby appeared to be approximately 12 hours old.

The Sheriff's Office would like to talk with the mother to confirm she is OK.

Under SC Law (Daniel's Law), the mother of a new born can leave a baby at the hospital without the fear of criminal prosecution.

The new born baby will be turned over to the SC Department of Social Services.

If you have any information on where the mother may be located, please call the Sheriff's Office at 864-489-4722.
