USA mother abandons newborn after giving birth in airport bathroom

Tuscon Airport Authority believes the woman gave birth around 9pm in an airport bathroom

The Tucson Airport Authority on Tuesday released surveillance footage of a person they believe to be the baby's mother, along with an image of the note and audio of the 911 call.

Authorities developed this timeline based on the amount of blood found inside a toilet stall and on some items of clothing found stashed inside a rubbish bin in the first bathroom.

Authorities have released photos of the woman they say left a newborn at the Tucson International Airport in January.

The baby was left on a changing table in one of the airport's changing rooms with a note reading, "Please help me".

Authorities are looking for a mother who they believe abandoned her newborn baby at Tucson International Airport with a handwritten note pleading, "I just want what is best for him and it is not me".

The expectant mother walked into the airport, but later left the premises without her newborn baby after she gave birth to the child inside the restroom, airport authorities said.

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.

They say the baby is healthy and remains in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

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

The note then switches to what appears to be a plea and apology from the mother. Authorities haven't decided on criminal charges against the woman.

Arizona is a "safe haven" state, meaning parents can drop off newborns at designated locations like staffed fire stations, hospitals, licensed adoption agencies, private welfare agencies and churches. "We would like to know who she is, but we've exhausted our resources", an airport spokesperson tells the Star. "There is a lot of fear", said Kimberly Marshall, a nurse practitioner and co-founder of the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation.
