A newly born infant wrapped in a towel was found this morning in a telephone booth outside a 7-11 store at 4039 Metropolitan, Kansas City, Kansas.
The 6 1/2-pound boy was taken to St. Margaret Hospital in a police district car summoned by the store manager. The baby, who is white, was described as in good condition.
Roger Thebo, a youth bureau detective, said the child was found by a passerby shortly before 9 a.m. The passerby notified store employees, who wrapped the child in a blanket and called police. Thebo said that while efforts are being made to find the mother, the child will be under the jurisdiction of the Wyandotte County Juvenile Court.
