Police in New York City say they are in contact with the possible mother of a baby boy found floating in the East River in an area popular with tourists near the Brooklyn Bridge.
In a statement released Tuesday, police said the 36-year-old woman filed a domestic incident report with the department Monday.
Police believe the child's father fled to southeast Asia.
A tourist from Oklahoma first noticed the baby late Sunday afternoon.
Her husband waded into shallow water near the Manhattan shoreline, retrieved the baby and started CPR.
He said the diaper-clad baby wasn't breathing and showed no pulse.
A medical examiner has not yet determined how the boy, about 8 months old, died.
Police say he showed no signs of trauma.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
