Police looking for woman who abandoned newborn baby in Arizona airport bathroom

The woman abandoned the newborn in a bathroom at the airport on Sunday, Jan. 14.

The Tucson Airport Authority released footage this week of the woman walking through the airport when the baby was abandoned on January 14, and are looking to find out who she is.

The infant is now in the custody of the Arizona Department of Child Safety and authorities are searching for his mother.

She told police she had become concerned after spotting "pools of blood" on the bathroom floor. A rental call employee found the boy and a note. "Please get me to the authorities so they can find a good home".

The note left with the tyke read, "Please help me".

Powell sworn in as Fed chief pledging to explain policy moves
Jerome Powell took office as chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System on Monday, for a four-year term. Powell succeeds Janet Yellen , the first woman to lead the nation's central bank in its 100-year history.

Authorities have now released the heartbreaking note the baby's mother left on top of him when she left the airport. She is unable and unfit to take care of me. She says the woman told her the naked baby was three months old.

The woman may have acted under the assumption she was protected by regulations designed for new mothers to leave newborns with authorities without penalty. The custodian later found bloody clothes stuffed under paper towels in the trash can.

Airport police said it was likely that the woman had given birth in a restroom in Concourse B before taking the baby to a family restroom in the baggage claim area to clean up, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

The child was in good condition, authorities said. The caller said someone had left the child with a note in the bathroom and that she was wrapped in a blanket.

Though the airport is not considered a safe haven, law enforcement officials said there are no criminal charges pending against the unknown woman. "There is a lot of fear", said Kimberly Marshall, a nurse practitioner and co-founder of the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation.
