HESPERIA, Calif. (AP) — The body of an infant has been found at a Southern California trash recycling center.

Sheriff's deputies were called to Advance Disposal Co. in the high desert city of Hesperia, in San Bernardino County, shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller tells KNBC-TV that investigators would like to hear from anyone who knows of a recently pregnant woman who gave birth without going to a hospital.

The Victor Valley Daily Press reports (http://bit.ly/1rvGZFz ) that last October an infant's body was found at a recycling center in Victorville, just north of Hesperia.

Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives, meanwhile, are investigating human remains found Monday night on a conveyor belt at a trash facility in Bassett, where other bodies have turned up in recent years.
