Authorities have released a picture of a newborn baby girl found abandoned in a carrier bag in Birmingham, as they continue to look for her mother.

West Midlands Police are appealing for the woman, who is thought to have left her child in Marlborough House Community Park off Stuarts Road in the Stechford area, to come forward.

They have released a photo of the infant, who was named Jade by nurses, in order to try and solve the mystery of who her mother is.

Birmingham East Chief Inspector Ian Green said: 'It is fantastic news that baby Jade is recovering well in hospital.

'I'm told she's very alert and a contented, happy baby. She's doing well and should make a full recovery over the next couple of days – but of course what she really needs is to be in her mother's arms.'

The girl is said to be doing 'really well' after being found wrapped in a blanket following a call out to police at 2pm yesterday by a member of the public.

'We attended and found a baby wrapped in a light blue towel in a carrier bag,' added Mr Green.

'She has been taken to hospital and is doing really well. Our concerns now are for the mother to make sure she gets the medical attention she needs.'

Mr Green said the young girl had been at the location for half an hour when she was found and asked for her mother to come forward so they could reunite them.

'You are not in trouble, we need to get you back together with your lovely daughter,' he said.

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance service said the girl was being assessed at a local hospital after being treated by paramedics.

West Midlands Police confirmed they had sent the carrier bag and towel the baby was found in to be forensically tested and added DNA samples from the baby were also being looked at in the hope they would lead to her mother.

Anyone with information should ring the police on 101, or the mother should go directly to a local A&E or doctor's surgery.
