An Arizona police department is asking for help to identify an abandoned newborn discovered inside a backpack abandoned outside an Arizona, grocery store on Sunday night. The Newborn was found inside a backpack with a picture of the Jonas Brothers on it.

According to a statement released Monday afternoon, the girl was found at approximately 7:46 p.m. on June 4, at the 1300 block of E. Apache Blvd. A pedestrian walking through the area spotted the baby and reported the information to the manager of a store in the area.

"The [umbilical] cord was cut, but it's still attached," the manager said. During the 911 call, the dispatcher made sure the Food City manager checked on the health and breathing patterns of the newborn until police and paramedics arrived.


Police said the newborn was taken to a local hospital and appeared to be in good health.

Tempe police are asking people with any information about the identity of the newborn, her parents or the backpack to call them at 480-350-8311.
