  • Woman gives birth and leaves note after abandoning infant son in Arizona airport bathroom as authorities ask for public's help in identifying her

On Jan. 14 shortly before 10 p.m., an employee of one of the rental vehicle agencies called airport police to say she'd found a baby in the restroom, airport spokeswoman Jessie Butler wrote in a news release.

The Tucson Airport Authority discharged film this seven day stretch of the lady strolling through the air terminal when the baby was deserted on January 14, and are hoping to discover her identity.

He was taken to a local hospital and is now in the care of Arizona Department of Child Safety. Please get me to the authorities so they can find me a good home.

The baby was found with a torn umbilical cord, which responding medics clamped immediately, and a note that read, "I just want what is best for him and it is not me".

"I just want what is best for him and and it's not me".

Authorities say she left the airport without her baby boy.

Ms Quintana asked the woman if she was OK, and the mother told her the baby, who was naked and had his eyes shut, was three months old before hurrying away. The law, known as the safe-haven law or Baby Moses law, allows newborns to be left at designated areas like hospitals and firehouses to prevent the deadly practice of stranding unwanted babies.

Ms Quintana also found the bloodied clothes in the bathroom rubbish bin.

Arizona is a "safe haven" state, therefore a person may surrender a child to authorities without being punished. The first part of the note appeared to be written from the perspective of the child. Authorities haven't decided on criminal charges against the woman. "We would like to know who she is, but we've exhausted our resources", an airport spokesperson tells the Star. There are a lot of different things that are probably going through a mother's mind.
