Authorities are searching for the mother of a newborn baby boy who was found in a pile of trash in Jersey City.

Hudson County prosecutors tell the Star-Ledger that the child was found Saturday afternoon in an area near the city's McGinley Square neighborhood. The child was taken to a hospital, but further details on its condition were not immediately disclosed.

Prosecutors said they did not know who found the baby or how long the child may have been outside.

No arrests have been made.
