Victorville (California): A baby girl`s body has been found on a conveyor belt by a worker sorting out cans and plastics at a California recycling center.

Authorities said the body was found wrapped in a blanket on Friday. An autopsy was planned.

Homicide detectives from the San Bernardino County Sheriff`s Department were investigating. The infant`s age was not immediately known, but authorities said she appeared to be a newborn.

Sheriff`s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said today there were few leads in the case.

"No one has come forward to identify the baby," she said. "So until the autopsy is done, there are a lot of questions that can`t be answered."
