A 9-year-old girl recently gave birth to a girl in Mexico last month and now the authorities want to find the father.

The 9-year-old was "just over 8 when she got pregnant," reports her mother, who went on to say, "The father is a boy who is 17, but we have not found him, since he ran away."

A law enforcement official said, "We are looking for the young man to get his story, because she does not understand what has happened."

It's believed the girl, identified as Dafne, and the on-the-run father had been in a committed relationship. Dafne reportedly had no clue she was even carrying a child until her seventh month.

Mother and daughter were released from the hospital last weekend, although it's unclear how they're faring.

A 9-year-old giving birth is actually nothing new. Back in 2010, a Chinese girl that age welcomed a baby boy.
