The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services has released the name of the daycare provider under investigation following an incident involving a one-year-old girl last week.

DCFS officials report they are investigating Tasha Farris who operated a daycare center out of her home.

The investigation centers around the incident last Thursday in which the one-year-old was left in a hot van for about a half hour.

The girl was taken to Blessing Hospital for observation and released the next day.
