Help police ID woman who left newborn with driver in Greenville


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Greenville police are asking for help finding the mother of a days-old baby left with a passing driver.

The incident happened around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Greenville Police Department said in a news release. 

A woman was driving near Augusta and Dunbar Streets when she was flagged down by a female.

The driver stopped to see if she could help and the female handed her a baby girl. She reportedly told the driver that she could not care for the child before walking away.

Police say the driver took the newborn, which they believe was born Thursday or Friday, to a hospital where the baby was admitted for observation. The baby is said to be doing well.

Investigators are working with S.C. Department of Social Services to identify and find the mother of the child.

The mother was described as a young African-American female, around 5 feet 2 inches tall and around 190 pounds. The female reportedly spoke with a foreign accent.
