INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Police investigators are trying to find the mother of a newborn girl found dead in a wooded area of an Indianapolis park.

City police say officers were called to Eagle Creek Park by a person who found the baby's body while hiking Sunday afternoon.

Police say the baby was perhaps a day old and was found about 30 yards from a parking area of the park on the city's northwest side. Emergency workers pronounced the girl dead at the scene on the 3,900-acre park's northern edge.

Investigators say the baby was found wrapped in a blue sweatshirt with a logo saying “Aviation Maintenance Vincennes University-Indianapolis.''
