Reports claims that a baby ‘about 5 day old’ was dumped inside the bathroom of Moosic presbyterian church in Lackawanna County.

Roger Griffith, the Reverend of the church said he heard sounds coming from the bathroom, only to find a baby wrapped in a blanket.

“i heard sounds of a crying baby coming from the bathroom downstairs, went downstairs only to find a baby wrapped in a blanket,” the Pastor said.

I believe the baby was dropped between between Sunday worship and Monday morning.”

The has since been taken to the hospital and said to be in good health.

The Lackawanna County district attorney's office and police are investigating.

Moosic Police Officer John Chilleri said, "The main focus of our investigation is to identify the baby and identify the mother.”

We're reaching out to the public and asking the public if anyone has any information about an infant who may have been born at home, delivered at home, or delivered somewhere other than a hospital within the last five days, or a provider who may have been approached or may have been asked for help in treating a female who may have just delivered a baby or (was) complaining of bleeding," he further stated.
