SPRING VALLEY — Police detectives are distributing reward fliers in three languages as part of the ongoing effort to locate the mother of the newborn baby whose body was found in an Elmsford recycling center last week.
The New York State Crime Stoppers fliers, in English, Spanish and Yiddish, show several items found with the body — including a blood- and fluid-stained black skirt — and ask anyone with information to call the CrimeStoppers hotline: 866-313-TIPS (8477). The flier offers a reward of up to $2,500.
The newborn baby boy’s body was tossed into a recycling bin at the Maple Avenue Convenience Center near North Myrtle Avenue in Spring Valley on Tuesday, police say.
A worker at Brookfield Recycling in Elmsford discovered it Tuesday afternoon. The body was stuffed into a plastic bag with a blood- and fluid-stained black skirt, a flowery towel and pink underwear, police said.
Police said the baby appears to have been Hispanic.
Westchester County and Spring Valley police believe the full-term infant was killed immediately after being born.
Investigators released photos of the clothing last week, hoping the long, black skirt would jar the memories of people who might have seen the mother at convenience center or in the neighborhood.
