In Mexico, the search is on for a 17-year-old boy accused of getting a 9-year-old pregnant.

The family alerted authorities when she gave birth less than two weeks ago.

Hospital officials say both the little girl and her baby are in the care of the girl's grandmother and are in good health. The state's Attorney General's Office is investigating whether the case should be legally considered child sex abuse or rape.
