Cops release e-fit of missing mum after baby George found dumped in park just hours after birth

POLICE have released an e-fit of the missing mum of a baby found dumped in a park just hours after his birth.

The newborn, named George by hospital staff, was discovered wearing a £1 Matalan T-shirt at The Mounds in Kings Norton, Birmingham.

Cops have now issued an image of a woman they wish to speak to as they reveal they are "still desperately concerned" over his mum.

They say they want to check the mother is "safe and well" after the horror on April 22.

The tot is "healthy" and "doing well" in foster care.

Detective Inspector Neil Hunt, who is leading the investigation, said: “Once again, I really want to reach out to George’s mother as you are my concern. I’m worried about you and I need to make sure you are safe and well.

“We’ve not taken the decision to issue this image lightly or to frighten you. We simply want to find you so we can talk to you, check you are okay, and offer any help or support you may need.

“If anyone recognises this woman, or thinks they know who George’s mother is, please do get in touch. You can do so in complete confidence if you’d prefer.

“We’ve had a good response to our earlier appeals and I thank everyone who has contact us so far. If you know anything – no matter how small or insignificant it may seem – please get in touch.”

West Midlands Police said the baby was full term, likely to have been born the same day and abandoned hours later.

They previously released CCTV footage of a woman was in the area at the time although her identity is yet to be confirmed.

She has been described as white, around 5ft 6ins tall and of medium/large build.

The woman was wearing a light grey zipped hoodie and jogging bottoms and may have had her hair in a low ponytail at the time.

Police are urging anyone who recognises the woman to get in touch.

The force said: "We’ve been searching for the mother of little George for exactly three weeks today.

"Our enquires have been extensive and we’ve followed a number of leads, but sadly we’ve not been able to find his mother.

"We’re still desperately concerned about his mother. We want to check she is doing okay, both physically and mentally.

"This remains our only concern right now, so we’d like to reassure her as well as her family and friends of this."
