A baby who rescuers looked for off the side of a cliff in Sylmar was found safe Tuesday morning at a relative’s home in the San Fernando Valley.
Deputies were called about 1 a.m. by the child’s father, who told them he and the baby’s mother had been in an argument and she claimed to have tossed the baby over a cliff near Lopez Canyon and Kagel Canyon roads, reported Deputy Tracy Koerner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Los Angeles County firefighters and Altadena and Crescenta Valley Search and Rescue Teams were dispatched to the scene to look for the child and the baby’s parents were detained for questioning, he said.
During the course of the investigation, the child’s mother admitted to deputies she did not toss the baby over a cliff and the child was at relative’s home, said Koerner.
The age or sex of the baby was not immediately available, he said, adding that a sheriff’s department investigation of the incident is continuing.
