Cops in desperate search for parents of baby found dead at recycling centre

Police are searching for the parents of a newborn girl who was found dead at a recycling centre.

The tragic discovery was made in Sackers recycling centre in Needham Market, Suffolk, on May 14.

The child – who was thought to be less than two days old – was taken to the site in a waste collection vehicle, police believe.

Officers have not yet been able to trace the parents, and are making direct appeal to the mum days before Christmas.

DI Karl Nightingale, from Suffolk Constabulary, said: "We are still investigating the tragic circumstances that led to this newborn baby girl being found.

“Although it has been just over seven months since she was found, we want to reassure everyone that we are doing all we can; remaining determined and hopeful of identifying her parents.

“We know that Christmas can be an extremely difficult time for anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby and we are continuing to urge her mother and father to come forward so they can gain the support they need.

“We are repeating our previous plea for anyone with information about the baby girl’s death to come forward, however difficult this may be.

“This is information that could be vital and may help us piece together the identity of this newborn baby.”

A post-mortem exam was carried out on May 19, but the findings require further examination.

A spokeswoman for Sackers said: "Our recycling sorting facilities are so thorough that we believe the baby was found very quickly once it was at our Needham Market site."
