Baby taken after birth 'when dad GAVE her away to unknown friend found dead days later'

A BABY who cops said was taken just after her birth and given to her dad's unknown friend has been found dead.

The newborn was found deceased in southern Wisconsin just days after her at-home birth, the state's Department of Justice said on Sunday.

The baby girl was reportedly born on January 5 at a home in the village of Albany, Wisconsin.

Green County CrimeStoppers said the girl was carried away by a man who was identified as her father.

The girl's father then proceeded to her off to a thus-far unidentified acquaintance, police said, adding the baby was reported missing on Saturday.

At the time, police believed that the person who took the child was driving a grey Chevrolet Equinox.

But now, authorities say they are no longer looking for the vehicle, according to a press release from the Justice Department.

So far, authorities say they still haven't been able to identify the assailant.

No additional information has been released about the case.

However, the state DOJ said that the investigation into the baby's death is still active.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Green County Sheriff’s Department at 608-328-9400.
