Urgent appeal to find the mum of a newborn baby found in a Birmingham park
We’re urgently trying to find the mother of a newborn baby who was found in a community park known locally as The Mound off Shannon Road in Kings Norton this afternoon (22 April).
The baby boy was found wrapped in a blanket at around 5.30pm. He was found by a local resident and taken to hospital to be checked over.
We’re extremely concerned for the welfare of the baby’s mother, and urgently appealing for her or anyone who knows who she is to come forward.
Detective Inspector Allan Green from our public protection unit, said: “The baby is being cared for by medical staff and our priority is to now find mum and make sure she is ok.
“She may be in need of urgent medical attention and she is our absolute priority at the moment.
“We have been checking CCTV and speaking to members of the public, but it may be that the mother or someone who knows who she is sees this appeal.
“I really want to speak to her to make sure she’s OK and would urge her to get in touch.”
Anyone with information has been asked to get in touch, quoting log 3476 of 22 April.
