Even today, the police continued their search to find the woman who gave birth to the child and left the infant in Suure-Lähtru.
“We focused on checking the received information and collecting additional information. We checked a number of tips received from all over Estonia, but until now we still do not know the wanted woman or her possible location,” said Andrei Taratuhin, head of the Haapsalu police station.
According to Taratuhin, just as when starting the search, the main goal is to find the woman who gave birth to the child, who, as far as the police know, has not yet received medical treatment. “That’s why the most important activity of the police right now is collecting all kinds of information, and it’s a very large-scale job, to which many good people contribute,” said Taratuhin.
The police appeals once again to all people who may have noticed something suspicious in the area of Suure-Lähtru village in Lääne-Nigula municipality on Sunday, February 4 or in the morning of Monday, February 5. You can report your observations by calling 5198 9886 or 112, or by writing to [email protected].
The police also ask all drivers whose vehicles are equipped with an on-board camera and who drove in the Suure-Lähtru area or on the Ääsmäe-Haapsalu-Rohuküla road on Sunday, February 4 or Monday, February 5 to contact them. “It’s possible that your onboard camera caught something that will help us find the woman,” said Taratuhin.
“We also appeal to the woman who gave birth to the child herself – if you read or hear this information, let us know about yourself so that we can make sure that your life and health are not in danger and offer you help and support if necessary!” said the police chief of Lääne County.
