Police are asking the public for tips as they try to locate the mother of a newborn baby found in a box and covered in a blanket in southeast Calgary on Thursday afternoon.

“The baby was taken to hospital by EMS, where she is in stable condition,” the Calgary Police Service said in a news release issued Thursday night. “At this time, very few details are known and our primary concern is for the well-being of the mother.”

A woman who was walking her dog in the Ogden neighbourhood made the discovery and called police just before 5 p.m., police said.
