HOUSTON, Texas — The body of a newborn baby was found this week in a portable toilet at a Houston-area riverside park, authorities said.

Maj. Susan Cotter of the Harris County Sheriff's Office said workers emptying the chemical toilet found the body on Thursday. She said the umbilical cord was still attached, and the baby appeared full term.

She said workers had last emptied the toilet on Monday morning.

An autopsy will be conducted. Cotter urged anyone with information to contact authorities.
