Attribute to Detective Senior Sergeant Malcolm Hassall, Counties Manukau Police:
Police are seeking the public’s help to locate a missing two-day-old baby boy who is believed to be with his mother, Dorothy Opetaia (pictured).
Police are concerned for the wellbeing of the infant, who was removed from Middlemore Hospital but requires urgent medical assistance.
Police believe the baby is with his mother Dorothy Opetaia and they are likely to be in the South Auckland area.
“I have serious concerns for the wellbeing of the baby boy who desperately requires medical care. Someone in the Opetaia family will know where he is,” says Detective Senior Sergeant Hassall.
“I’m appealing for Dorothy or any family members to take the baby to any hospital straight away, delaying medical attention could cause him to become seriously ill.”
Anyone with information can contact Counties Manukau Police immediately on 09 261 1321.
