Update: Baby discovered in Newport /
This article is old - Published: Friday, Feb 19th, 2016

It’s now been three weeks since the discovery of the baby in Newport and we would still like to speak to the mother. This must be an incredibly distressing time for her and we want ensure that she is offered the right support. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Maybe you can assist us? We have some further information that we would like to share with you that may help us find her. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The baby is a boy and he was found wrapped in a white towel which had the words ‘St Annes’ hand written along the edge. We have established that this towel originated from St Anne’s Hospice in Newport and that they have written this on many hundreds of towels over the years, so many similar towels will exist. The wrapped baby was then placed in a black leather handbag, identical to the one pictured. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Do these items look familiar to you? If so, have you seen them recently? Maybe you can connect them with someone who may have been acting unusually over recent months, particularly in the past three weeks since the baby was found? ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If you think you can help, please get in touch. You can call us on 101, quoting log number 207 29/01/16. If you would prefer to e-mail us, then please drop us a line on ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
