Sheriff’s Office Looks for Parents of Abandoned Newborn

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Deputies in Florida have released photos of a newborn baby boy who was found abandoned, in hopes of finding the child’s mother.

Media outlets report the baby was found Friday on the back porch of an apartment near Orlando. Doctors estimated the infant had been born just hours before.

Orange County Sheriff’s Office deputies released photos of the infant Monday. Spokeswoman Jane Watrel says investigators hope pictures of the baby will help them find the infant’s mother.

Investigators want the baby’s mother to come forward because they’re concerned about her health and about the baby’s medical background. Watrel says criminal charges “are not even part of the conversation.”

The newborn is healthy and in foster care.
