An airport employee found the child January 14 abandoned in a restroom near the rental auto counters.

Authorities have released a video and photos of a woman believed to be the mother of baby boy born in an Arizona airport bathroom last month.

The woman told the custodian she was okay and that she just had her period before she quickly left the restroom, police said.

The newborn was found inside the bathroom with a torn umbilical cord and a note. "Please get me to the authorities so they can find a good home", the note reads.

"Please help me", read the note left with the child.

According to the Tuscon Airport Authority, 'An investigation of video and witnesses indicates it is possible the mother, who has yet to be identified, gave birth to the baby boy sometime around 9pm'.

Ms Quintana asked the woman if she was OK, and the mother told her the baby, who was naked and had his eyes shut, was three months old before hurrying away. She can't and unfit to deal with me.

Quintana said she found bloody clothes in the trash can with paper towels on top in an apparent effort to hide them.

ABC 13 reports the baby was left with a note. Please. I'm sorry."Police are describing the mystery woman as being in her mid-20s and was wearing black leggings and a coat.The baby is now in the custody of the Arizona Department of Child Safety".

The child was in good condition, authorities said.

Though the airport is not considered a safe haven, law enforcement officials said there are no criminal charges pending against the unknown woman.

Kimberly Marshall, the co-founder of Arizona Safe Baby Haven foundation added: "We hear stories where a baby is abandoned, or a mother who has had a baby doesn't know what to do, doesn't know who to turn to".
