Police spokesperson Inspector Jokatama Qio said the iTaukei mother entered the Labasa market and ap­proached Raghni Lata, a market ven­dor to hold her baby while she was looking for something in her bag.

“The vendor had reported that the mother failed to return, and she grew anxious and brought the baby to the Labasa market community Police post,” Inspector Qio said.

“A wide search continues.”

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services has advised that: “Ministry knows of this case and the key priority for the Ministry at this point in time is to ensure the health and well-being of the baby.”
