Police said they've received numerous tips about a baby's body discovered at a north Portland recycling center, but none have led to the child's mother.
The newborn baby girl was found May 28 among recycled items at EFI Recycling, 4325 N. Commerce St.
On Monday, police released the baby's handprints and footprints "as part of an emotional plea for information."
The Multnomah County medical examiner's office said the baby was a full-term or nearly full-term girl that was born alive and took at least a few breaths before dying. The umbilical cord was still attached and it's believed the girl had been born within a few days of being discovered.
Investigators said there were no signs of trauma to the baby's body.
The child was described as a black or mixed-race baby girl. Police said the mother likely needed immediate medical treatment.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward in this case. If you know anything about it, call 503-823-HELP or go to www.crimestoppersoforegon.com.
