Police are searching for the mother of a newborn baby that was found dead and wrapped in a blanket on a porch in North Philadelphia this morning.

The baby girl was found shortly before 9:30 a.m. today on the porch of a house on the 4900 block of N. Marvine Street, in the city's Logan section. The infant was deceased and still had the umbilical cord attached to it, police said. There was no initial word on the cause of death.

Cops are concerned about the well-being of the baby's mother, who they fear might be in need of medical care. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251.
