BANGOR, Maine —

Authorities in Bangor, Maine, say no criminal charges are pending in the case of a woman found carrying a fetus in a plastic grocery bag.

Sgt. Paul Edwards says officers confronted the woman Friday after getting a call that she had a fetus. The woman approached an officer with what appeared to be a fetus inside a sealed plastic container, which was inside the bag.

The state medical examiner's office in Augusta, the attorney general's office, and police investigated. They determined the matter concerns the miscarriage of a 15-week-old fetus.

Edwards said Wednesday the mother has been identified, but he didn't say whether it was the woman who was carrying the bag. He says the case is considered closed.
