Jacksonville, Florida (AP) --

A Jacksonville woman has been charged with aggravated child abuse after authorities say they found her baby daughter stuffed in a gym bag in the back of a car.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says Leendra Glene Dasher
reported her daughter missing on Oct. 5. She said she had been
alone in her apartment with the baby and placed her in a crib the
night before.

Investigators quickly located the child in the vehicle.

Dasher is being held on $150,000 bond and will be arraigned on
Oct. 27.

The child has been placed in the care of relatives and is in
good condition.

A message left Wednesday by The Associated Press for Dasher's
attorney was not immediately returned.

    A parent doing this too a child ain't even called for.These type of people don't deserve to have children at all.I hope that the baby is okay & that they never give the child back to her.This has been happening in this world lately what in the world is wrong with this people.She should go away for a long time!!

    I do not understand some people. Especially a parent doing this to their own child. But, at least she reported the child missing and the baby was found alive, instead of dead in the gym bag inside the car. Stupid woman. I hope that child is never allowed in her custody again, at least alone.
