Austin police believe a six-month-old girl survived as long as five days alone near the body of her dead father.

Asia McCoy is recovering today at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin.

News 8 Austin reports the infant was born in prison and her mother remains behind bars.

The baby and the body of her father were discovered Sunday night when police received a call from concerned neighbors who hadn't seen the pair for days.

Police say 41-year-old Willard McCoy was dead in the mobile home. The child was nearby.

An Austin police spokeswoman today said the death is under investigation, but there's nothing to indicate that the case involves a homicide.
