Investigators are trying to find the mother of a baby found dead inside of a cooler at a Chicago Ridge recycling center Wednesday morning.

An employee made the discovery at Resource Management Company at about 4:30 a.m. The boy was wrapped in a blanket with the umbilical cord attached, according to Chicago Ridge Fire Chief Rob Pyznarski.

The cooler was picked up at a location in either Waukegan, IL or Pleasant Prairie, WI, and investigators were in the process of contacting authorities in those two cities.

An autopsy will be performed on the baby on Thursday.

Under Illinois’ Safe Haven law, parents are allowed to relinquish custody of an unharmed newborn up to 30 days old to personnel at a hospital, emergency medical care facility, police or fire station.

Parents can give up their child anonymously and without the threat of prosecution for abandonment.
