    Police said two witnesses saw a woman who appeared to be 18 to 24, dressed in a black jacket and top, dark blue skinny jeans, a black skull cap and wearing boots with white fluffy fur trim come briefly inside with the stroller. She mumbled something to the effect of that she’d forgotten something and that she’d be “right back” but she never returned, according to police.

    The baby is 25-inches long and weighs 17 pounds. She is Hispanic, has brown eyes and black hair, pierced ears and a light complexion.

    Unbelievable racist crap at that link!

    Too bad Casey didn't drop Caylee off somewhere safe.

    Why are they trying to ID her?? Dont they have a safe haven law??

    Ahhh-the safe haven expires at 30 days. So they are going to hunt down Mom and force her to take her back???

    She is beautiful-I will be happy to take her....

    Guess they're trying to find her so they can charge her with abandoning her child. This Mom probably realized she couldn't care for her baby, for whatever reason, and left her at a police station, which she thought was a safe place. But, they're looking for her so she can be charged with a crime? Leaving a baby in the woods someplace is definitely not the same as leaving a baby at a police station!

    I think this mom did the right thing. Maybe she has issues and can't or doesn't want her, she at least
    left her somewhere safe and didn't abuse/kill her, let a boyfriend hurt her, or leave her beside the street. I say find the sweet angel a loving home and leave the mom alone.
    Happy New Years

    Thank god this woman left this baby somewhere safe and did not harm her. Apparently she feels like she cant take care of her. I do not think she should be punished. I know that the time frame has expired as far as the safe haven law but it took a lot of courage to do that , I am just glad she is safe and not in a trashcan somewhere or worse...

    I hope they leave the mom alone. I'm just so grateful that if she couldn't, or didn't want to, take care of this little beauty, she did the right thing and left her somewhere very safe. Thank God!

    I hope this little cutie pie gets some wonderful, loving parents.

    ETA: Why don't they take all that money for pursuing the mother and just put it in a college fund for this baby girl instead?

    They obviously have to investigate.
    The child is older than 30 days. Also there is no guarantee that the woman who left the child is actually the child's mother.

    OMG she's adorable! Mom did the right thing and I so hope they will just leave her alone. Baby is alive and safe and that's all that should matter.

    Why did you automatically assume (like everyone else) that the woman was in fact the "mom?" I am amazed that the child was abandoned and yet people don't even want the investigation done. Even if the woman is "mom" the safe heaven law only applies to children under 30 days old.

    Well I hadn't thought of that, and you're right, they do need to confirm that this little doll wasn't abducted.

    You're right, I am assuming the woman was/is in fact the mother of this child and in assuming that, I wish they would leave her alone. Yes, I understand the law but having been here at WS for a while now, I've seen the alternative to leaving a baby in a safe place such as a police station. I'm glad the woman had the sense to leave her baby there rather than kill her and toss her along the side of the road or throw her lifeless body in a dumpster. So she broke the law...big freakin' deal...the baby is alive!
    So again, assuming the woman was/is this baby's mother I wish her well and I for one am grateful that she did not harm her sweet little baby. JMO

    Exactly. I think it's also a safe bet that if a man left this child at the police station, people wouldn't be so fast to just assume he is the father, everything is great, and police shouldn't try to find why the child was left at the station.

    I didn't think about that either JJenny.
    The stroller is a pretty nice and not a cheap one the baby looks well taken care of. I am thankful that little one is safe and we not talking about an Amber Alert...mother or not.
