THE POST MORTEM on the body of a newborn baby girl found in Bray yesterday has indicated no “deliberate injuries” were caused to the infant.

Reviewing their appeal for the baby girl’s mum to make contact with them, gardaí said the findings of the post mortem suggest the baby was born some weeks earlier than initially thought.

“There is nothing to suggest deliberate injuries were caused to the baby,” they said.

The infant’s body was found by a member of staff at the Greenstar recycling facility yesterday morning.

Superintendent Par Ward, from Bray garda station, today reiterated that he is very concerned for the welfare of the baby’s mum as she is possibly in a distressed state and in need of medical attention.

I would please ask for the mum to seek immediate medical treatment. I am available here at Bray garda station to help the mum and dad of this baby girl and if they would contact me or Sergeant Sorcha Fitzpatrick here at Bray Garda Station we will deal with any contact with us discreetly and sensitively.

He also appealed for anyone connected to the mum and dad, like any friends or family members who may have information, however small, to get in touch. An incident room has been estalished and gardaí are liaising with the HSE.

They can be contacted at the station on 01 6665300, through the Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or at any garda station.
