Infant left in Findlay restroom may be adopted

FINDLAY Nearly four weeks after a newborn was found abandoned in a restroom at Riverside Park, court proceedings are moving forward that could lead to the baby boy s adoption.

Hancock County Juvenile Court Judge Allan Davis has scheduled an adjudicatory hearing for June 28 in which he will determine whether the boy is a dependent in need of guardianship of the court. A dispositional hearing has been set for July 12 in which the court may decide whether to give permanent custody of the baby to the county s Children s Protective Services.

The agency was granted temporary emergency custody of the newborn May 17 a day after he was found in a women s restroom by a Glenwood Middle School student who was at the park for a pizza party. Police Lt. Chuck Wilson said investigators have been unable to identify or locate the infant s parents.
