Inspector Andrew Holland told reporters that authorities are now going through the records office to see if they can locate the parents of the child, and are hopeful they may come forward of their own free will.

Despite the advanced stage of decomposition of the child, a post-mortem is being carried out, to try to determine the likely cause of death.
