RJR News has been informed that the woman reported to the Alexandria police station on Wednesday.
She was subsequently charged with cruelty to a child.
It was reported that the child was heard crying in the community of Hesse Cassel.

The child's mother reportedly left the scene during a break in an interview with investigators.
She reportedly requested to get a change of clothes and disappeared.
