Baby found alive, parents dead in US hotel

A dehydrated six-month-old baby has been found by a police officer at a budget hotel in the US state of Michigan, in the same room with her dead parents.

WOOD-TV reported a cause of death wasn't immediately clear and it may take weeks until toxicology results are in.

The trooper discovered the bodies on Friday at the Rodeway Inn near Whiteball after responding to a request for a well-being check.

Authorities say the baby girl, named Skylah, could have been alone for three days.

Police identified the parents as 26-year-old Jessica Bramer, of Grand Rapids, and 28-year-old Christian Reed, of Marne.

Skylah was in critical condition at a Grand Rapids hospital on Saturday and was expected to fully recover. It wasn't clear who might take custody of the girl.
