(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Court documents say an Indianapolis woman and her dead infant daughter were found in a car with no gas and a dead battery about a block from where the woman was expected to leave the child with baby sitters.

A probable cause affidavit filed Thursday in support of a neglect charge against 36-year-old Rachel McAfee says the temperature was 9 degrees inside the car, her daughter Emma was on the front floorboard, a bottle of rum was nearby and the woman appeared intoxicated.

Police have said McAfee had postpartum depression, suffered from alcoholism and might have been suicidal . They said she and Emma were last seen leaving home about 7 a.m. Monday. They were found Tuesday afternoon.

McAfee was hospitalized with frostbite.
