ROSEVILLE, MI - Authorities say the body of a newborn boy found in a suburban Detroit recycling center is not that of a baby missing 85 miles away.

Police in Roseville and Meridian Township said Friday that DNA tests show no link between their cases.

Authorities this week said that 25-year-old Melissa Mitin told a judge she "could not recall" where her baby boy is. Mitin is charged with murder in Ingham County in the 2013 death of another baby.

Investigators say the child found at the recycling center in Roseville was between 1 and 3 days old. Workers discovered the body Wednesday night bundled in cloth as it came down a sorting line.

Roseville Police Chief James Berlin says it's "horrendous" that Mitin's baby remains missing and an unidentified child is dead.
