    "The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday released body camera footage from the night a baby was found abandoned in the woods tied in a plastic shopping bag. The graphic video shows the girl, who authorities named India, being cut out of the plastic bag. The umbilical cord is attached. “We release this footage in hopes to receive credible information on the identity of Baby India and to show how important it is to find closure in this case,” the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post.

    India was found June 6 on an isolated stretch of Daves Creek Road in the southern part of Forsyth County, according to Sheriff Ron Freeman. Her cries attracted the attention of a family in a nearby home, AJC.com previously reported. The family had been away on a trip, and returned just before 10 p.m. that evening. As they were unpacking their bags, a child heard the baby’s cries, Freeman said. The family called 911.

    Homeowner Alan Ragetz told Channel 2 Action News he might never have gone into the woods to investigate if it wasn’t for his daughters’ persistence. He thought it was a wild animal wailing in the woods, but he went along when the girls grabbed their flashlights.
    The sound was coming from a pile of leaves. “We went down, pulled it up, there was a poor little baby wrapped in a plastic bag,” he said. “She was alive, she was crying, so we figured that was a good sign.”"

    We hear of this happening from time to time but actually seeing it makes it so real and AWFUL. I can't even put my feelings into words. I am so glad that they found this sweet baby girl before it was too late.

    I’d say someone close by, within walking distance, was hiding a pregnancy.
