Officers were called by someone who came across something “suspicious” just before 9 a.m. on Nov. 8. The infant was found in an alley in the 400-block of 5th Avenue North.
An autopsy was completed on Nov. 12. Police, however, said further testing is required.
The autopsy was unable to conclusively determine the child’s date of birth, a press release said.
Police, however, did confirm the infant was a recently-born girl.
Investigators with the major crimes section are asking for anyone with video surveillance footage from between 25th and Queen streets and/or 3rd and 6th avenues. Police said they are specifically looking for video taken between Nov. 4 and 8.
The infant was located in a “very distinct” bag and police hope someone recognizes the photo they released, according to the press release.
Police said there is still an urgent need to locate the mother.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
