Baby safe after dropped off at church; possible parents have been in Arizona jail

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Authorities in Nevada say they'll do a DNA test to determine if a baby girl left at a church this week is the same infant officials have been searching for in three states.

North Las Vegas police Officer Aaron Patty says the Nevada Attorney General's office is facilitating the procedure involving the baby and the potential parents.

Octavia Jackson and Nicholios Nealy, thought to be the mother and father, have been jailed in Arizona for refusing to provide information on the missing baby Jackson birthed in Las Vegas in February.

The couple previously lived in California.

Patty says the cases are being linked for now because of the timing of the newfound baby, but that the identity is still inconclusive.

The baby is healthy and is now in protective custody.
