A baby girl was abandoned by a couple in Charlotte and now police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the child.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say a man called just before 7 a.m. from the 1600 block of Remount Road in Gastonia, NC., alerting police to the cold and alone infant.


The man said he met a woman around 9 p.m. Thursday while walking through the Lakewood Manor complex on Watson Drive and that she asked him to watch the baby, but never returned.

“The female (possibly the mother) is described as a young, dark skinned black female, approximately 170-180 lbs. and was last seen wearing shorts and a tank top,” police say.

The baby girl is described as being between six and eight months old.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or officials at 704-432-2442.
