Police say he is in good health, but was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

Officers say they do not believe there was any criminal intent in the case.

During a DCF hearing Friday afternoon, it was determined that the child would remain with a foster family.

DCF said doctors told them the baby appears to be 5 to 6 months old, based on physical development.

Safe Haven laws apply to infants up to 7 days old. It's unclear who dropped the baby off at the fire station.

Police say they will not be releasing the names of the parents, or any further information during the investigation. They say the boy's father contacted them but they are still trying to get in touch with the mother.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Davie Police Department at 954-693-8200 or Crime Stoppers.
