A spokeswoman for the hospital in Salem, Ind., where the girl was first taken, said Saturday that authorities were still trying to figure out how she ended up in the field alone. St. Vincent Salem Hospital spokeswoman Melissa Richardson says the child's family is from New Pekin, Ind., and the girl was found in a field near her home.
