11-month-old baby found a week after she disappeared in San Luis Potosí

An 11-month-old baby who disappeared a week ago was found alive and well yesterday amid litter and construction garbage on a vacant lot in San Luis Potosí.

Federal Police officers on patrol heard an infant crying on a property next to the Río Verde-San Luis Potosí highway.

There they found Mya Fernanda Parra sitting on a blanket and wearing only a light dress despite the cold.

She was taken to the Hospital for Children and Women, given a clean bill of health and reunited with her parents.

Mya Fernanda disappeared on August 30 while her grandmother was taking her to a daycare center. The woman was found dead later the same day in El Zapote. She had been wounded in the thorax and the abdomen and had bled to death.

But there was no sign of the baby.

The San Luis Potosí Attorney General’s office continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death and the apparent kidnapping of the young girl.
