Authorities in the Philippines detained an American woman Wednesday after a six-day-old child was discovered in her carry-on bag at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila.

According to CNN, the 43-year-old woman, who has not been identified, appeared to be traveling alone when airport staff inspected an oversized carry-on suitcase with the child inside.

The woman claimed to be the baby’s aunt but only possessed a passport for herself.

“She did not have any travel documents for the infant,” said Philippines Immigration Bureau spokesman Melvin Mabulac.

The Philippines National Bureau of Investigation’s Anti-Human Trafficking Division is now investigating.
