ABANDONED BABY – Police Reissue Appeal A Month After Newborn Baby Was Found Abandoned In A Park

Police have reissued a heart-breaking appeal to find the mother of a baby boy who was abandoned in a park.

The boy, named Harry by hospital staff, was found carefully wrapped in a white blanket one month ago, but police have not traced any family members.

He is now being looked after in local authority care while detectives continue their appeal to track the mother.

Detective Inspector Justine Taylor who leads the investigation said: “It has now been a month since Harry was found.

“In that time we have been in constant contact with hospitals throughout London to see if Harry’s mother has sought medical attention but we have yet to identify her.

“I would reiterate our appeal to Harry’s mum – please come forward and let us know you are safe and if you need care and support, we can help you access this.”

Park area where baby Harry was found.

Harry was found in a park area in Plaistow, west London, at about 8.20am on Sunday, September 17.

Police and London Ambulance Service were called and he was taken to an east London hospital.

Authorities launched their appeal on the same day, urging the mother to come forward for hospital treatment, but they are still yet to find the woman or speak to any other family members.

DI Taylor added: “Little Harry is doing well but we would urge anyone else with information, or who saw anything out of the ordinary in the Balaam Street area on that morning, to please come forward.”
