Yesterday, we reported that a young mother and her three-month-old infant had gone missing. Reports say that the mother was thought to have postpartum depression, and they were concerned about suicide, according to ABC.
Now, there's been a tragic update. Police found the two, who went missing Monday morning, in their car.
Rachel McAfee and her daughter Emma were found inside their car in freezing temperatures. EMS tried to save the baby, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
McAfee was transported to the hospital. She was suffering from what appeared to be cold-related injuries.
Rachel McAfee and her daughter Emma were reported missing on Monday by her husband. McAfee was supposed to drop Emma off at a sitter's house, but she never showed up.
According to the most recent reports, police arrested the mother for neglect of a dependent causing death.
Rachel McAfee remains in hospital. An autopsy for Emma is pending.
Please join us in praying for this family, especially for the father who has lost his daughter in such a tragic way. May God guide and comfort the whole family.
