An unnamed girl, 9, in Jalisco, Mexico has reportedly given birth to a baby daughter who weighed in at just under six pounds. Police are now hunting the reported father of the baby, believed to be 17 years old, after he went on the run, The Daily News reported Wednesday.
Surprisingly, the baby was healthy and weighed just under six pounds when it was born in Zoquipan Hospital, in the state of Jalisco, on Jan. 27. The new mother and baby were kept in the hospital until last weekend, to make sure there would be no postpartum problems with either of them, but the hospital reported that it will be closely monitoring the development of the baby due to the young age of his mother.

The new mother's own mother, identified only as Dafne, said: "The girl was just over 8 when she got pregnant. The father is a boy who is 17, but we have not found him, since he ran away.”
"We want to find the young man who was responsible for comment because she does not recognize the significance of their actions. We are in a case of rape or child sexual abuse," said Jorge Villaseñor, prosecutor of the local district.
