ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland’s capital city say a newborn boy found outside a home seems to be in good health.
Annapolis Police Chief Scott Baker says in a news release that the infant was found about 6:35 a.m. Friday. The boy, who, Baker says, is Hispanic and believed to be just hours old, was taken to a local hospital.
Police are asking for the baby’s mother to come forward as she might need medical attention or be the victim of a crime.
Baker reminds residents that under Maryland’s Safe Haven law, a woman can safely surrender custody of her infant child, no questions asked, at a hospital or law enforcement station.
