Southaven police are trying to identify a newborn baby found dead on a porch and who the child’s parents might be.

A release from Southhaven Police Department says that Thursday police got a call concerning an abandoned newborn infant found on the front porch of a home. When officers arrived on scene, it was determined that the infant was dead.

SPD is asking that the families impacted by this are allowed to have their privacy during this difficult time.

”We are also asking that if anyone has information on the mother, to please come forward,” the release said. “We are concerned for her health and well-being.”

Police say they want to be able to provide the necessary resources for the mother and family of the infant.

If anyone has any information about the identity of the mother or information concerning this matter, please call the Southaven Police Department at 662-393-8652 or email
