On Saturday, authorities still didn’t know who was responsible for abandoning the child two days earlier outside the house in the Suffolk County hamlet of Brentwood.

Police say a 14-year-old boy who lives there was first to hear the baby’s cries. He found her in the shoebox wrapped in a blanket, with a bottle of milk.

The teenager’s family called police.

The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors say she’s in good health.

Authorities notifed Child Protective Services.
