The woman then took the baby to the restroom outside the rental vehicle facility, where she left him with a handwritten note which read, "please help me".
A woman believed to have left her newborn baby in an Arizona airport bathroom didn't realize she was pregnant, according to a heartbreaking note she left with the infant.
Arizona is a "safe haven" state, meaning parents can drop off newborns at designated locations like hospitals and churches if they are unable to care for them. It begs whoever finds him to turn him over to authorities so they can find the boy a good home.
The second part of the note is written from the mother's perspective, and reads, "I just want what is best for him and it's not me".
Authorities described the mystery woman as being aged in her mid-20s and said she was wearing black leggings and a coat.
A custodian told police she saw the woman holding the baby inside the restroom and that there were pools of blood on the floor.
An airport employee found the child January 14 abandoned in the restroom near the rental auto counters.
TAA officials say the woman possibly gave birth in a Concourse B restroom, then took the baby to a family bathroom in the baggage claim area to clean up before abandoning the child.
Ms Quintana also found the bloodied clothes in the bathroom rubbish bin.
TAAPD has exhausted all its own resources and those of the local law enforcement community as well and is not actively looking for the woman, a spokeswoman for airport police told InsideEdition.com. When she asked the woman if she was okay, the suspected mother would only say that the baby was 3 months old and left in a hurry. Authorities have not yet filed any criminal charges, according to the Arizona Daily Star.
