The foetus of a girl child that was found along the Nasese seawall in Suva last Friday was 14 weeks old.

Director Criminal Investigations Department SSP Vakacegu Toduadua told FijiLive post-mortem examination showed the female foetus died from drowning and loss of blood.

“We are working with health authorities to help locate the mother and also provide her with medical assistance because she might need it,” said SSP Toduadua.

The foetus was discovered by a fisherman Kishore Kumar in the mangroves while he was checking his crab net.

Police are urging members of the public to contact their nearest police station if they know the whereabouts of the mother.
