A 7-week-old child was found dead after being left inside of a car for eight hours Sunday, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies said the child was found dead inside of a van at a family member’s home in Mary Esther around 9:30 p.m.

The family member reportedly was not aware that the child’s mother had placed the baby in a rear-facing car seat inside the vehicle after church, around 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, deputies said.
