Police have launched a fresh appeal to find the mother of a baby found abandoned in a Plaistow park, one month on from when he was discovered.
The baby was found at 8.20am on September 17 after the baby was found in Plaistow Park, near Balaam Street, “carefully wrapped in a white blanket.”
The baby, who has been named Harry by the medical staff who initially cared for in, is now being cared for by Newham council.
Detective Inspector Justine Taylor, who leads the investigation, said: “It has now been a month since Harry was found. In that time we have been in constant contact with hospitals throughout London to see if Harry’s mother has sought medical attention but we have yet to identify her.
“I would reiterate our appeal to Harry’s mum - please come forward and let us know you are safe and if you need care and support, we can help you access this.
