No charges laid against mother of baby allegedly abandoned in Toronto

At 11:10 a.m., Toronto police announced a newborn had been found abandoned outside in the area of Keele Street and Lawrence Avenue.

Toronto police say the 19-year-old mother of a newborn baby boy who was reportedly discovered naked and abandoned Tuesday morning will not be charged. Paramedics say the baby was rushed to a hospital where he remains in critical condition. "A short time later we found the mother, who was in need of medical care".

The temperature in Toronto is now -4 C.

Police said they were told that the couple wrapped the baby in a sweatshirt and brought him to their home before calling 9-1-1. "In this investigation, we don't anticipate there will be any".

According to Hopkinson, the mother was located by police on Tuesday afternoon.

"We wouldn't be going into anything that involves the background of this woman, there's no charges", Hopkinson said Wednesday.

The woman was not in handcuffs, though she was being escorted by multiple police officers.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is encouraged to call Toronto police or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-8477.

A worker at one dry cleaning business with a door facing onto the walkway where the baby was falsely reported to be found previously told CP24 that investigators reviewed surveillance footage but did not see any baby being left in the walkway.

The mother was also taken to hospital for treatment. Children's Aid Society of Toronto CEO David Rivard told CP24.

Police did not release any information on how long the baby was outdoors.
