BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A woman woke up to an infant in her bed and had no idea where the child came from or whose it was.

Battle Creek Police took custody of the baby pending the arrival of Child Protective Services.

It turns out that the woman’s son had dropped off the child before going out for the night and didn’t tell his mother, who was asleep at the time.

What’s more, the baby doesn’t belong to the woman’s son.

Battle Creek Police said the child became “an instant hit” with the officers on duty. The officers gave the child “Matchbox cars, teddy bears and beanie babies” in an effort to make the child’s odd experience a little easier to get through.

Minutes after Battle Creek Police released information on the mystery child early Sunday, the baby was identified and is in the process of being returned to his mother.

Child Protective Services is in the process of investigating the incident.
