While the recent discoveries of two unidentified baby girls (one in southern Australia, one in Massachusetts) have been all over the media, not all cases are so lucky. Sadly, there are too many cases that are similar to those where a baby girl has gone years without anyone knowing her name. Take a look at the baby girls below. You might be the one to give a baby girl back her name.
A trucker driving through Millwood, Ware County, Georgia, had stopped on the side of the road and kicked a nearby television console. To his surprise, it broke open and revealed a black metal suitcase. He opened the suitcase and to his horror found the body of a baby girl encased in cement. A post-mortem revealed she was a black female, two to three years old, and had been deceased for about two or three months. She had black hair, which was tied with brightly colored bows, and wore pajama pants and a white pullover shirt with a red pony on it. A printable poster about this baby girl’s case is here. If this girl sounds familiar to you, contact the Ware County Coroner’s Office at 912-283-3030 about case number U338979918.
Truckers were also involved in the discovery of a baby girl in Dog River beneath the westbound lane of I-10 in Pascagoula. CB radio messages the night of December 4, 1982, reported a young woman walking along I-10 carrying a child and not allowing anyone to help her. On December 5, a trucker called the police to report seeing the body of a woman in the river. The woman’s body was never found, but the body of a baby girl was found in the water. She was a white female, estimated to be 1- to 2-years-old, with long strawberry blond hair and either blue or brown eyes. She was wearing a Cradle Togs’ pink and white dress, which buttoned in the back. A printable poster about this baby girl’s case is here.
