The discovery was made Tuesday by an employee who was moving trash at the ReCommunity Recycling facility in Farmingdale. The discovery was made public late Wednesday afternoon.

Blood-stained clothing was found near the body. Authorities hope that someone may recognize the items and provide information that might help them identify the child's mother.

An autopsy was performed Tuesday by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner's Office, but the results have not been disclosed.
