A newborn girl was found abandoned in a shopping bag Sunday afternoon in the parking lot of an Illinois church.

Members of Gospel Presbyterian Church, at 210 S. Plum Grove Road, were returning to the lot around 2 p.m. Sunday when they saw a green recyclable grocery bag on their vehicle, Schaumburg police said.

They found a teddy bear and towel inside and brought the bag back into the church, thinking another church member left the bag on their car, police said. Someone then heard a noise from inside the bag and found the infant.

“We don’t know who the mother is and are hoping that the public will help us identify her,” said Sgt. John Nebl, public information officer for the Schaumburg Police Department.
