KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

It's been two days since a 13-month-old baby girl was abandoned in the middle of the night and there is still no one charged in the crime.

Kansas City, KS, police said detectives are doing everything they can to get to the bottom of what happened outside the Juniper Gardens apartments, located in the 1900 block of North Second Street, early Sunday morning. Officers were called to the apartments about 2:30 a.m. after a baby girl was found, alone and crying, in the back of a car.

Investigators originally believed the girl's mother left her there, but now said they're not sure.

Currently, several people involved in the baby's life are in the hot seat with police.

The girl was checked out at an area hospital and, while hospital personnel found no signs of abuse, they said she did have a case of ringworm.

The baby is in protective custody Tuesday, but the ball is already rolling to get her into foster care.

At this point no one is in custody, but police are asking if you have any information that might help them in their investigation to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
