According to deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, police regional crime investigations coordinator for Erongo, the crying baby was discovered at around 07:30 by a member of the public who was on the way to the industrial area to look for work. He heard the cries of a baby and found the new-born zipped in a brown travelling bag placed in the reeds near Neptune Street. He immediately alerted the police.

The baby was taken to the Walvis Bay State Hospital for medical examination and was found to be healthy. The police is requesting for public assistance in tracing the suspect.”
