DNA testing under way to see if baby belongs to missing woman
(2007-06-20)
(WOUB) - DNA testing has begun to see if a newborn found on a northeast Ohio porch belongs to a missing woman who's nine months pregnant.

The director of the Canton Stark County Crime Lab says the results won't be known until Monday or Tuesday.

A couple found the baby girl Monday night at their rural home near Wooster, about 45 miles west of the North Canton home of 26 year old Jessie Davis. She hasn't been heard from in a week.

The FBI says it plans to release details later today on a reward for information leading to Davis' whereabouts. No suspects or arrests have been announced.

Authorities describe the infant as being less than 24 hours old; DNA was taken using a mouth swab.
