Tucson airport officials release details in case of infant found in restroom


Authorities in Tucson, Arizona, are looking for the mother of a newborn baby who was left with a note in the city's airport bathroom.

Authorities say the woman can be seen on airport security footage walking "with a gait" and carrying something wrapped in a blanket, according to ABC affiliate KABC.

On Jan. 14 shortly before 10 p.m., an employee of one of the rental auto agencies called airport police to say she'd found a baby in the restroom, airport spokeswoman Jessie Butler wrote in a news release.

Over the last 20 years USA states have introduced safe-haven laws allowing newborn babies to be left at designated areas such as hospitals and firehouses, to prevent the precarious practice of dumping unwanted infants on doorsteps or under bushes.

The note left with the tyke read, "Please help me". The first part of the note appeared to be written from the perspective of the child. "My mom had no idea she was pregnant".

The woman told the custodian she was okay and that she just had her period before she quickly left the restroom, police said.

The youngster was in great condition, authorities said.

The Washington Post has reported the baby was found "with a torn umbilical cord" and that medics clamped the cord to prevent bleeding, although the child was otherwise healthy and well.
