JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WFLA) – Jacksonville sheriff’s deputies are investigating the death of an infant girl found Wednesday afternoon in a van at a daycare.

During a press conference, officials with the department said the baby girl was in the van for five hours.

According to First Coast News, the child’s mother called the daycare to check on her baby but was told employees hadn’t seen her. The report says the mother rushed to the daycare and found the baby inside the van. 

Charges are pending at this time.
