RINGGOLD _ Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk is asking for the public’s help with information about a deceased infant found at the Graysville Canoe Launch on Tuesday.
According to a press release, deputies were called to the canoe launch at 1 p.m. regarding a lifeless, underdeveloped infant lying face down at the edge of South Chickamauga Creek. The umbilical cord and placenta were still attached to the remains.
Investigators believe the infant was brought to the area sometime earlier on Tuesday.
“We know that someone is going through a very tragic time in their life, and we want to help,” Sheriff Sisk stated. “If you saw something at the Graysville Canoe Launch before 1 p.m. on this date, such as a vehicle or persons in the area, or if you know someone who was pregnant and is not without their baby, please give us a call.”
An autopsy is being conducted to help develop information. Anyone with information can call Catoosa County Detective Brittany Gilleland at 706/935-2424 or email her at [email protected]
