Infant found dead
Man arrested near Fort Recovery
  FORT RECOVERY - A Springfield-area man has been taken into custody in connection to an infant found dead in a vehicle Tuesday afternoon.
A caller found the child in a car seat in the vehicle, which was still running, at 5:17 p.m. in the 6200 block of Wabash Road, Fort Recovery, according to a Mercer County Sheriff's news release. Celina Fire Department personnel responded to the call and reportedly pronounced the infant dead at the scene. Information on the child's age and whether he or she was from the area was not released.
Deputies located in the vehicle identification for Brian Hayslip, 22. He reportedly had been listed as a missing person from Clark County. Officials from both sheriffs' offices exchanged information about the incident.
Coldwater K9 Mojo and Coldwater Sgt. Kyle Dues were called to the scene and found Hayslip in a nearby open field near a wooded area, where he was taken into custody. He was listed as an inmate in the Mercer County jail this morning, according to the Mercer County Sheriff's Office website.
The case has been forwarded to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office for appropriate charges, according to the news release.
The child's body was taken to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office for an autopsy.
Detectives from the two sheriffs' offices are working together. The prosecutors' offices in the counties are working to determine jurisdiction in the case, the news release stated.
