BURKE COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - A little girl, nicknamed "mystery baby" after she was found in a meth house bust, has been returned to her pregnant mother, investigators say.
The 14-month-old baby was found on Friday when investigators busted a meth house in Burke County. Deputies told WBTV they found $20,000 worth of "high quality" meth, which is about half a pound, at the home off of Deer Track Street in Southern Burke County.
But, investigators weren't counting on stumbling on a baby they found in the same home.
Deputies say they are now trying to figure out the identity of a baby that was dropped off at the house by "the child's mother" about a week ago. None of the adults in the home knew the baby's name and none of them claimed the baby, deputies said.
