Police have found a weeks-old baby boy in a Northern California body of water, but authorities did not positively identify the body as that of a missing infant.

KNTV reports that (http://bit.ly/1LGUVn2 ) a body was found shortly before 10 a.m. Wednesday in a wetlands area at the junction of the Sacramento River.

Woodland Police Capt. Dale Johnson said crews statewide had been searching for Justice in Knights Landing after the baby's mother called 911 Tuesday afternoon.

Johnson told KNTV that the baby's mother, 23-year-old Samantha Green, was also considered missing for a time. She turned up late Tuesday afternoon in Knights Landing, on a levee road near the Sycamore Slough along the river. Her car was found at the opposite end of the slough.

Johnson said Green was "distraught and disheveled consistent with someone that had come from the slough."
