'I'm sorry': Mom gives birth, abandons baby in airport bathroom with note

'I'm sorry': Mom gives birth, abandons baby in airport bathroom with note

On Jan. 14 shortly before 10 p.m., an employee of one of the rental vehicle agencies called airport police to say she'd found a baby in the restroom, airport spokeswoman Jessie Butler wrote in a news release.

The Tucson Airport Authority on Tuesday released surveillance footage of a person they believe to be the baby's mother, along with an image of the note and audio of the 911 call.

The child is healthy and in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

An airport custodian says she asked the woman if she was OK after finding blood on the floor of a restroom. The mother vanished after giving birth alone in the airport bathroom, leaving behind only a handwritten note. "Please get me to the authorities so they can find a good home", the message said, scrawled on notebook paper in the voice of the newborn.

The note left with the tyke read, "Please help me".

"I just want what is best for him and and it's not me". She says the woman told her the naked baby was three months old. She can't and unfit to deal with me.

The Tucson Airport Authority is searching for a woman who they believe abandoned a newborn at Tucson International Airport. The custodian also found bloody clothes in a trash can. The first part of the note appeared to be written from the newborn's perspective.

The airport bathroom is not a safe haven location and the woman could face criminal charges, like child abandonment or endangerment.

TAAPD has exhausted all its own resources and those of the local law enforcement community as well and is not actively looking for the woman, a spokeswoman for airport police told InsideEdition.com. "There is a lot of fear", said Kimberly Marshall, a nurse practitioner and co-founder of the Arizona Safe Baby Haven Foundation.
