Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance locating the mother of a newborn infant found at a multi-unit residence in northeast Edmonton yesterday.
Early yesterday afternoon, Sunday, April 18, 2021, police received a report that a newborn infant female had been found unattended at a multi-unit residence in the area of 65 Street and 129 Avenue.
The three-day old infant was transported to hospital by EMS as a precaution and is reportedly in good health.
Despite canvassing the building and the neighbourhood and contacting local hospitals, police have been unable to locate the infant’s mother or anyone associated with the child and are hopeful the public can assist.
“We’re thankful for the resident who found the infant and took care of her until EMS and police arrived,” says Det. Kurt Schlosser with the EPS Northeast Division Investigative Response Team.
“As the child was born recently, we are concerned for the health and wellbeing of the mother.
“We are hopeful that someone may have information about her whereabouts so we can connect with her and ensure she is receiving any care and support she may need.”
At this time, the infant remains in the care of Alberta Children’s Services.
Anyone with information about the infant or the mother is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
