Police locate mother of baby boy found outside Sutton fire hall

News Staff | posted Friday, May 24th, 2019

York regional police say they have located the mother of a newborn baby boy who was found outside a fire station in Sutton early last Tuesday morning.

Police say the mother is safe and in good health, but they would not comment on the mother’s age or her mental state at the time that the baby was abandoned, and that includes whether or not postpartum depression may have been a factor.

Police say no charges have been laid at this point but would not deny that charges could be laid in the future.

The baby was found in the grass beside Georgina Fire Station 16, wearing a blue knit toque and wrapped in a grey scarf, between 2:30 a.m. and 3 a.m.

He was in good health and is currently in the care of the York Region Children’s Aid Society.
