Police are pleading with members of the public to stop ringing a phone number set up for the mum of a new born baby girl who was found in Towyn last week.

The phone line which has been set up for the mum of the baby girl and her family to call and make contact with health professionals and the police is being ‘misused.’ ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police say people are calling the dedicated number and providing misleading information which has led detectives to deploy valuable resources on unnecessary enquiries. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Detective Chief Inspector Sion Williams said:

We are extremely grateful to everyone who has made contact through 101 with information. Sadly a very small number of people have chosen to misuse the dedicated line for Mum, providing misleading information. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

I cannot stress strongly enough how important it is that this line is kept free for mum, her family or friends. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The small number of misleading calls have resulted in significant resources being diverted to conduct unnecessary enquiries. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Again, I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of being able of keep those who are working tirelessly to find mum focussed so that we can make sure she is safe and well. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police have reissued an appeal for the mother of the new born baby girl, was found in a bus shelter by the Magpie and Stump public house in Towyn at 7.15am, to contact them. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

If anyone knows who the mother is or can provide any information which may assist in identifying her please contact North Wales Police by calling 101, quoting reference number V103529 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
