Florida Baby Found Alive Under Bed; Mom in Custody

Chrystina Lynn Mercer, 25, has been charged with neglect of a child with aggravated circumstances and interference of child custody. The 7 month old child was reported missing and found 4 days later in a box at a babysitter’s house. “They gave us consent to search the home and we found the baby in a box under a bed, with stuff pushed around the box to hide the baby,” said Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock. The baby was taken to a hospital and found to have no health issues. The child has been put in protective custody. Police say they have never had a case like this.
