Police have launched a public appeal for the mother of a newborn baby found abandoned in southwestern NSW.

A Griffith couple found the baby boy wrapped in a pink cloth bassinet outside their front door last night.  Police said the couple found the baby after answering their doorbell.

The baby has been taken to Griffith Base Hospital for assessment and is believed to have been born on Friday morning.

Police are urging the boy’s mother to come forward.  They hold concerns for her health and believe the mother may be in her teen years.

If you or someone you know has information regarding this matter, please contact NSW police ASAP.

  • yes it is sad that this happened but good that she tried to make sure the baby would be found vs leaving it elsewhere.


  • So sad. She clearly cared enough to make ure her baby was safe.


  • The poor thing she must be terrified. I hope they are both well.


  • The poor mummy must be in absolute desperate need of help, I hope they find her and get her some assistance. Bless x


  • I hope the mother is ok. Its horrible to think that she thought that was her only choice.


  • I wonder why she chose to ring at that door and not another one! Hopefully the little girl is ok!


  • I feel so sad for the mother, it must be terrible to need to do this. I can’t even begin to imagine the situation she was in. But at the same time I’m glad that she didn’t just dump the baby somewhere that harm could come to Bub.


  • How very sad for both Mum and Baby, let’s hope they find her safe also.


  • I hope the mother is ok. To leave your baby you must really be struggling. I won’t judge as you never know what has caused her to do this. I’m glad this baby is safe


  • I hope that they can find her and get her the help she needs. Not everyone can cope with being pregnant, birthing a baby and being a parent. I am glad she wrapped her baby warmly & took it to a home where she thought the child would be cared for.


  • I hope she comes forward to get help. It is terribly sad she felt she had to give up her baby like this. Good luck precious bubba boy.


  • Oh my goodness. I hope they find her
