PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public’s help in determining how a deceased newborn baby ended up in a recycling center three years ago.

Officers responded to EFI Recycling on May 28, 2013 at 8:33 a.m., on the report that a person discovered human remains among recycling items.

Based on the autopsy results, detectives believe the African American or mixed-race baby girl was born within a few days of the discovery.

EFI Recycling cooperated with detectives to try to determine how the baby ended up at the recycling center, but no solid leads developed through the investigation.

Detectives want to hear from anyone with information about this case.

According to detectives, the mother of the baby may have sought medical attention shortly after the birth.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards for information that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime. Information about unsolved homicides can lead to a reward of up to $2,500 cash, and all other unsolved felony crimes are eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000. 

Tipsters can remain anonymous.
