A California newspaper carrier discovered an hours-old baby girl early Monday after she had been abandoned in the middle of the road.

The worker picked up the newborn, who was dressed in just a soiled onesie with temperatures below 30 degrees, around 4 a.m. and called 911, according to California Highway Patrol.

The baby was transported to Valley Children’s Hospital and was doing well.

The Madera County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a suspect described as a Hispanic woman, possibly in her early 20s, who left the scene in a small white SUV.

Authorities urged anyone with information to call 559-675-7770.

According to California’s safe surrender law, parents or anyone with custody of an infant within 72 hours of his or her birth can surrender the child at a designated drop-off site, typically a hospital or fire station, without any questions.
