TOWN OF BELOIT, Wis. (AP) — Police say a newborn missing from a southern Wisconsin home has been found alive at an eastern Iowa gas station.

Town of Beloit Police Chief Steven Kopp says an officer checking along an interstate near West Branch, Iowa, found the nearly week-old Kayden Powell on Friday morning.

Gas station manager Jay Patel says the baby was found in a closed, gray plastic storage bin and that the FBI took it and surveillance video from the station.

No arrests have been made in connection to the baby.

Authorities say the child appears to be in good condition and has been taken to a hospital for evaluation. They had been looking for the baby since early Thursday when his mother discovered him missing from a bassinette in a Town of Beloit home.
