New York City police have found the mother suspected of abandoning a baby girl at a Manhattan subway station.
Police say the 20-year-old woman is being questioned. She was found just after midnight near 72nd Street and Broadway.
No charges have yet been filed.
Police say the woman pushed the baby's stroller onto the platform when the northbound No. 1 train arrived at the Columbus Circle station. They say she then got back onto the train.
Authorities say the baby, who's 6 to 7 months old, was examined at a hospital and shows no signs of trauma.
She's now in the care of the Administration for Children's Services.
