The 27-year-old from Pennsylvania posted a photo of herself holding a sign that read:

"Looking for my birth mother. She gave birth to me September 15th 1986. She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old."

"Please help me find her by sharing my post. Maybe she will see this. Thank you."

Deprill was around 3 hours old when a customer found her.

She became known as the ‘Burger King Baby’ but said she has no anger towards her mother:

"I would guess she just couldn't give me the life that she wanted, which is why she left me in a warm, public place."

Katheryn hopes her message will be read by someone connected to her birth mother

She was placed in foster care after being discovered and was then adopted by a local family.

She went on to have 3 of her own children.

The mystery mother has still not been found but Deprill emphasised that she did not want anything from her.

Speaking to wfmz.com, she said:

"We're not coming after you for anything."

"I just want to see you. I want to say thank you for not throwing me away, literally."
