Neighbors found the baby while searching for the source of murmuring sounds coming from a backyard. They located the child and called 911.

Officials said Hoyt, from Sayre, Pennsylvania, left the baby near bushes in a backyard last weekend. Sisters Kayla and Karen Seals made the initial discovery after hearing what they described as odd noises and at first thinking it was an animal in distress.

“My sister came out off the porch and went to the side to the backyard of my neighbor’s house with a stick, thinking it was a dog.” As Kayla Seals approached, she realized the object on the ground was a baby in the plastic bag. “Her legs were just dangling in the bag, her head was in the bag, her whole head was covered all the way down,” Kayla Seals said. source

Police commended the sisters for quickly getting the child inside and rendering aid.

“They are truly heroes in this incident,” Elmira Police Sgt. William Solt said.

The baby remains in stable condition at a hospital, officials said.

Hoyt was being held Wednesday in the Chemung County Jail.
