Police Investigate Baby 'For Sale' in Online Classified

Police are searching for a baby in Salt Lake City that was advertised "for sale" on a local online classified listing.

Salt Lake City police were contacted March 21 by employees of KUTV-TV after someone listed a 6-month-old girl as "for sale/adoption" on the station's classified Web site, officials said.

The child was listed under "Baby & Children Items" at a cost of $6,560, police said. The name of the person selling the little girl was listed as Pauline Burgman, police said.

"We're still in the process of trying to identify the poster of the ad," Det. Jeff Bedard of the Salt Lake Police Department told FOXNews.com. "At this point, we've not been able to either validate or debunk this story."

The station took the listing off its Web site. According to a KUTV.com news story, the girl was described as "used," but "beautifule [sic] and affectionate with so much love to offer."

The Salt Lake City Police Department is asking anyone with information as to the whereabouts of the child to call 801-799-3000.
