Police appeal to mother of abandoned baby: ‘Come forward’
OFFICERS trying to trace the mother of a baby who was found in Corby have issued a direct appeal for her to get in touch with them.
The baby girl, who is pictured, was found in a box outside a house in Ibsen Walk, Corby, on Monday morning, September 21. It is believed she could have been left outside the property as early as 6am.
Detective Superintendent Steve Lingley has appealed to the baby’s mother to contact him so he can be sure she is safe.
He said: “I want to appeal directly to the mother of the little baby who was found outside a house in Corby on Monday. Your baby is safe and is being well cared for.
“I know you may feel you are in a very difficult position and I know it must have been incredibly difficult to have left your baby.
“But please get in touch with us – we want to make sure you are all right.”
The baby girl is three to six weeks old.
She was found wrapped in a blanket wearing just a nappy and has dark hair and dark eyes.
