'I'm sorry': Mom gives birth, abandons baby in airport bathroom with note

Tuscon Airport Authority believes the woman gave birth around 9pm in an airport bathroom

Authorities are searching for a woman who is believed to have given birth in the toilets at Tucson airport and immediately abandoned her child.

Air terminal security got a 911 call from somebody who found the baby at the changing table close baggage carousel, as indicated by KABC, and they quickly started exploring.

The Tucson Airport Authority released chilling new information about the incident, as well as video footage showing the unidentified mother walking around the airport with what appears to be the baby. "My mom had no idea she was pregnant".

Authorities have now released the heartbreaking note the baby's mother left on top of him when she left the airport.

Airport authorities believe the woman gave birth to the baby in a restroom cubicle at around 10pm on 14 January.

The baby was found at Tucson International Airport in Arizone in the United States on January 14.

ABC 13 reports the baby was left with a note.

The note goes on to say that the mother is "unable and unfit" to take care of the child and asks whoever finds the baby to take him to the authorities so they can find the baby a good home.

"I just want what's best for him, and it is not me", the note reads.

But since an airport is not a designated location, the woman could face criminal charges.

He remains in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

TAAPD has exhausted all its own resources and those of the local law enforcement community as well and is not actively looking for the woman, a spokeswoman for airport police told InsideEdition.com.

Arizona has a "safe haven" law, meaning a newborn - no more than 3 days old - can be left at hospitals, churches, fire houses and similar locations.
