(FORT WAYNE) - Authorities in Indiana say a 7-year-old girl tested positive for PCP and other drugs after she was taken to a hospital emergency room in Fort Wayne.

Department of Child Services spokeswoman Stephanie McFarland said Friday that the agency has had "prior contact" with the child's family but she couldn't comment further.

The Journal Gazette says no criminal charges have been filed. A police report says officers and a DCS official went to Parkview Hospital Randallia on Wednesday after the child tested positive for methadone, marijuana and Phencyclidine, a narcotic commonly known as PCP.

The police report says the child's mother refused to talk to officers, but officials were investigating whether another caretaker may have been involved and the DCS intended to interview the other children in the girl's home.
