Police Want Public Help in Abandoned Baby Case
The search is on for the mother of an abandoned newborn in Kimberly. Fox Valley Metro police are now seeking more help from the public for clues, as to who this baby's mother is and why the infant was left near a church dumpster. Police, want to stress that any little detail, could be the big tip that helps them solve the case.
On Monday night, a man walking his dog found a new-born baby girl near a dumpster in Kimberly. Outagamie Child Protective Services now has custody of the baby who is still receiving medical care and is in good shape.
Now, the question remains, ‘how's the mother doing'?
"Our message has been all along, its equally important to check the welfare of the mother and find out details as to why it happened and what we can do to resolve it from there," says Officer Jeff Steeber with the Fox Valley Metro.
In the last couple of days, police have received emails and phone calls from people with possible leads. "Investigators are still following up on the tips as we receive them, but nothing definitive yet, nothing conclusive," explains Officer Steeber.
Police believe this case will be solved when someone comes forward with the right detail; no matter how specific or generic that tip may be. "We have it set up that they can call our police department directly or contact crime stoppers directly its set up anonymously for them to call," says Steeber.
Police say they'll continue to investigate until they find who this child belongs to.
