There's a $500 reward for information about whoever left a newborn boy behind a Fort Polk fire station on Dec. 6.
The baby, now in foster care, was two to 14 days old when he was found. He was wrapped in a polyester quilt blanket with a design of brown teddy bears and yellow and brown stars on a blue-and-white checkered background.
State law lets parents relinquish babies up to 30 days old without fear of prosecution, if the baby is turned over to workers at designated "safe havens."
Those include fire stations, but the baby must be handed to workers, rather than just left inside or outside.
