The woman's neighbor, who tried to help her, is still in shock. Her neighbor said she is relieved at how things turned out.

It was reported by ABC News that a friend of Kegelman's noticed blood on her trousers and asked where her baby was. I couldn't imagine doing that with my baby.

Hoffman, 40, posted a seven-under par 65 in conditions described by one former Masters victor as "borderline" unplayable. The highly-rated Spaniard said: "I feel like I played better than the score shows, but it's still a great score".

Kegelman was also taken to Morton Plant, where she told police she knew she had given birth but lied about the baby for fear she would be arrested for "having smoked crack moments before giving birth", according to the report. She then took the baby to the back garden of her home and returned to the house empty-handed. Kegelman, of Clearwater, admitted the baby had been born but begged the friend not to call the police.

Kegelman finally showed paramedics where she had hidden her newborn baby boy. Police said he's now in the hospital, while his mother now faces a child neglect charge. "You could see the trousers stretch out", Meeks said. "I really am. And I guess I'm glad things went the way they did because I hope that lady never gets that child".

President Donald Trump says North Korea will top the agenda during his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping later this week. Japan officially lists 17 nationals as abduction victims but suspects North Korea's involvement in more disappearances.

Officials say the baby survived and is now at a hospital.

Kegelman was later jailed but released on bond Thursday.

North Korea has carried out several test missile launches - possibly including one medium-range missile - so far this year. Rudd believes that "there is an opportunity for some progress to happen on the trade front in particular".

Police say it's now up to staff at The Florida Dept. of Children and Families to determine a home for the baby.
