A MUM was missing for 10 hours after being born in a hospital toilet and leaving the newborn – a desperate hunt to track her down.
The baby was discovered Monday around 6:00 pm by staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
Doctors today take care of the healthy child, who was reunited with his mother early in the morning, police said.
A statement by Thames Valley police released 10 hours after birth states, "We want to thank the public for their help in locating a mother who was born last night at John Radcliffe Hospital and then disappeared.
"She was found now and is safe and sound.
"She is receiving medical care.
"Your baby is fine too and is looked after by medical staff at this time."
The hospital had previously said it was "very worried" about the mother's health after her sudden disappearance.
Sam Foster, chief nurse at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said, "I appeal directly to the baby's mother for medical attention."
Detectives scoured CCTV footage of the woman who was trying to find her.
Mrs. Foster added: "The birth of a child is a very emotional process. From a physical point of view, you need our medical and midwife team to check if there are no complications at birth.
