Jalisco state police spokesman Lino Gonzalez said the baby girl was born last week at a hospital in the city of Guadalajara. He said the girl and her baby are doing well.

Mr Gonzalez said the girl's family alerted authorities after she gave birth and the alleged father has not been seen since in the neighbourhood they both live in.

He says that if the teenager's paternity is proved he could face child sex abuse charges.

Mr Gonzalez says the girl told authorities the teenager was her boyfriend.
