STERLING, Va. -

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office is looking for the mother of a newborn baby girl found floating in a pond in the Countryside area of Sterling.

A man walking by the pond made the discovery around 11:40 this morning. There's a lot of foot traffic through the area, including people out walking along a path and even some fishing in the pond. Neighbors expressed shock.

Sheriff Michael Chapman says his office would like to locate the mother to find out what happened and to get her medical attention she probably needs. Anyone who might have seen anything suspicious in the area of Awsley Court is asked to contact Detective S. Petrakos at 703-777-0475.
