by in Parenting

Police in NYC are looking for a the parents of a beautiful baby girl, believed to be about 18 months after they abandoned the tot in broad daylight on the Upper East Side.

Workers at the Ritz Diner on First Avenue and East 62nd Street said they thought nothing of it when they saw a man and woman got out of their car with a baby in a stroller.

But then worried when the couple got back in the car and drove off without the child.

Officials said the baby appeared to be in good health after she was rushed in an ambulance to New York Hospital, where she was held for observation.

“She was a beautiful baby girl,” said Francesca Perrone-Vaquero, a pedestrian who saw a crowd fussing over the girl.

“The baby looked happy and was laughing. Who would leave a poor child like that on the street?”

Onlookers said the child, who was dressed in pink, was left behind with Pampers and boxed, new toys in the baby buggy.

Police have been trying to trace the little girl’s parents from a cash receipt left in the bag containing the goods, that showed her parents bought a pair of baby shoes from the H&M store in the Queens Boulevard mall.

They have also been looking through surveillance video at the store to try to identify the parents.
