Police seek mother of baby abandoned in bushes
Police were today searching for the mother of a newborn baby found abandoned in bushes.
The little girl, believed to be only two days old, was discovered inside a pink and white canvas bag, wrapped in a grey cardigan by a woman in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.
The infant - named Rosie by medical staff who are now looking after her - was found with her umbilical cord still attached.
She was taken to Wycombe General Hospital after police were called just after 5pm yesterday to a spot of open ground on Oxford Road, about 50 metres from the new Sainsbury's.
Last night she was being cared for in hospital where Thames Valley Police said she was "safe and well".
Officers are now looking for Rosie's mother who they say could require medical treatment.
Det Sgt Robin Hughes said: "Our primary concern is for the health of Rosie's mother.
"We urgently want her to come forward or at least seek treatment, as she could suffer medical complications which are potentially very dangerous.
"The umbilical cord was still attached when the child was found, so this would not have been a medically supervised birth."
Anyone with information is asked to contact High Wycombe Police Station on 0845 8 505 505 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
