Police in Georgia are looking for the mother of an abandoned infant. The baby, who has been dubbed "Baby India" was found several weeks ago in a wooded area of Georgia wrapped in a plastic bag, reported local news.
Officials said they’re still searching for the baby’s mother. They hope the pictures they released might help them in finding her.
The baby was found by Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies late on June 6. They responded after receiving a 911 call from someone who heard the baby crying.
Forsyth Sheriff Ron Freeman called the newborn girl's discovery a miracle. He gave thanks for the person who made the 911 call.
“It was, without doubt, divine intervention that this child was found,” Freeman told the Gwinnett Daily Post. “Surprisingly, the baby was in good condition.”
He continued “Had it not been for those observant citizens who called 911, we would be having a most difficult conversation today,” Freeman said.
Anyone who knows a woman who was in the late stages of her pregnancy but does not have a baby now should speak to authorities. A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said on June 20 that officers are following up on a potential lead in Richmond County.
Anyone with information should call the sheriff’s office at (770) 781-3087. Tipsters who want to remain anonymous can call the office’s anonymous tip line at (770) 888-7308.
