Authorities have managed to locate the mother of a 10-month-old baby who was left at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport International Airport (MSP) last weekend following an appeal to the public to help find the child’s parents or guardian.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension put out an alert on Tuesday after attempts over the last few days to identify the child and her mother failed to bring up any leads.
The unnamed baby girl, who is estimated to be around ten months old, was brought to MSP by an adult female via the METRO Blue Line light rail system at around 9 pm on Sunday night.
The woman who brought the baby to the airport was described by officials as being “in crisis” and is not believed to be her mother. Social workers took the child into their care while an “exhaustive investigation” was launched to track down her parents or guardian.
On Tuesday, the BCA said no children matching the girl’s description had been reported as missing or abducted but within hours of the alert being put out, the BCA said it had identified the mother who had been found safe.
Investigators from the BCA and MSP Airport Police Department did not immediately provide any further information about the case.
