King County sheriff’s investigators are still trying to find the mother of a newborn baby whose body was found abandoned near North Bend earlier this year.
On Tuesday morning, the sheriff’s office said that a DNA profile has been developed from the newborn with the hope of finding a relative. The baby girl appeared to have been full term and still had the umbilical cord attached.
Detectives said they have followed up on several tips they received after the body was discovered on Feb. 12, but none has led them to the people responsible. Shortly after the newborn was found, detectives released a photo of a burping pad and towel that were with the infant’s body. The infant was found in the 38000 block of Southeast North Bend Way.
The sheriff’s office has named the girl Baby Kimball after the bridge she was found near.
