WELCH (WVVA) - Authorities are searching for answers after twin newborn boys were anonymously dropped off at a doorstep.

Trooper Coburn with the Welch detachment of the West Virginia State Police tells WVVA News the boys were initially left at the home of a good Samaritan in Verner, Mingo County, on June 26 -- along with a note saying to take the babies to Welch Community Hospital.

The homeowner obliged and took the boys to the hospital.

Coburn says it appears the babies were born outside a medical facility. He says the children appeared to be in good health, and are now in the custody of DHHR.

Coburn could not say if they were in the hospital or a foster home.

Authorities are now seeking the identities of the parents of the children.

If you have any information about this, please call the West Virginia State Police at 304-436-2101.
