The police in Walvis Bay are looking for the parents or guardians of a baby girl that was abandoned in the dunes near the Narraville neighbourhood of the harbour town.
Chief Inspector Ileni Shapumba the head of the community affairs division of the Namibian Police in the Erongo Region, requested members of the public to assist them in identifying the baby who is approximately 16 months old.
According to the report provided by Shapumba, the little girl was found this morning at approximately 07:10 by a man walking in the dunes about 200 meters from the road between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund.
He added that the little girl was wrapped in a blanket and dressed warmly when the man found her. Three extra nappies were found in the blankets in which the baby was wrapped.
“Observations made at the scene indicate that two different people were at the scene where the child was abandoned. Their tracks lead back to the Kuisebmond neighbourhood,” he said.
He said that there were no documents to identify the baby and added that she had no visible injuries on her body.
“She was taken to a place of safety and left in the care of a social worker from the Ministry of Gender and Child Welfare,” he said.
Shapumba called on anyone who might have information about the incident or any person who can identify the little girl to contact Detective Warrant Officer Helena Kalipi at 0812408039, or Warrant Officer Stephanus Ndinomupya at 0813671198. Alternatively, such information can be provided at the nearest police station.
