Body of baby boy found in Fraser River

The body of an infant boy was found in the Fraser River between Richmond and Burnaby on Tuesday night.

Police say the baby was located around 10 p.m. on Oct. 11 by witnesses in the area who at first glance believed the infant to be a doll.

Police attended and confirmed the infant baby was deceased.

While the baby appears to be newborn the autopsy will ultimately be required to confirm those details as well as the race of the baby.

“IHIT are concentrating on finding the mother of the baby and ensuring that her health and well being have been looked after.  She may require medical attention and we are asking she contact investigators at 1-877-551-IHIT(4448),” says Sgt. Jennifer Pound

IHIT are asking for any witnesses who may know anything to call the IHIT tipline at 1-877-551-IHIT(4448) , or, if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222(TIPS)8477
