JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police are still looking for information leading to the suspect or suspects who abandoned a newborn outside a local apartment complex Wednesday.
The baby was found alone, on the ground outside an apartment on October 24. It happened at the Huntington Apartments on Monument Road.
The baby was in front of apartment number 1112, which has been vacant since July 2012. The baby was wrapped in a towel.
The baby is a little girl and police believe she is either African-American or biracial. Doctors say she appears to be full term and was only a couple of hours old when she was found. The baby is doing well and is at a local hospital.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is currently trying to locate anyone with any information about the child, or what happened. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
Florida has a Safe Haven Law. A child 7 days old or younger can be left at a hospital, emergency medical services station, or a fire station, no questions asked.
The Safe Haven website provides anonymous alternatives to abandonment through education, prevention and community involvement.
