State takes custody of newborn found on Newaygo Co. road

A Newaygo County court has granted the state of Michigan emergency custody of a newborn baby that was abandoned on a dirt road near White Cloud earlier this week. A 14-year-old girl abandoned the newborn after giving birth on a blanket outside her home in the Diamond Lake area. A passerby walking his dog discovered the naked infant, now under care at Devos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids. The Michigan Department of Human Service asked for emergency custody Wednesday. Authorities say they're still investigating the situation. (MRN)
