Police have confirmed the newborn baby whose body was found in Bolton was a little girl.
The baby's body was discovered on Friday by walkers in Ox Hey Lane, Lostock, near the Reebok Stadium.
Officers also recovered a note that requested the baby receive an Islamic burial.
We can now confirm the baby was a little girl but there are still a number of questions that remain unanswered.
"Chief among these questions is the identity of the mother. Our priority remains to trace the mother who we imagine must be having an extremely distressing time.
“We are still very worried about the parents physical and emotional state."
A post-mortem examination failed to determine the cause of death.
