A newborn baby's found buried alive near Compton, California.

Fox News' Carmen Roberts reports:

People on a bike path heard the baby's cries and went for help...

Now, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department wants the public's help in identifying the baby and the mother who left her for dead...

(Jaramilla) "The baby was buried in the ground in about a foot of asphalt and debris... If the child had spent the night there in those conditions, the baby wouldn't have survived."

Sgt. Marvin Jaramilla says the little girl's in stable condition. It appears she was born in a hospital as early as Wednesday.
