Search continues for mother of abandoned baby

Police are this morning continuing to hunt for the mother of a newborn baby abandoned in a bag in a Birmingham park.

The girl, thought to be just one or two days old, was found in a community park off Stuarts Road, Stechford, at around 2pm yesterday.

She was found wrapped in a blanket in a bag by a nearby resident and taken to hospital.

Ch Insp Jack Hadley appealed for the mother, or anyone who thinks they may know where she is, to come forward.

Now that we know the baby is safe and in the care of professionals, our priority is to find mom.

She may be in need of urgent medical attention and we need her to contact us as soon as possible.

– Chief Inspector Jack Hadley, West Midlands Police
