Police are looking for a person of interest in the case of an hours old baby girl that was abandoned in Queens earlier this week.

Eyewitness News doesn't yet know how this person is connected to the case.

If you know where Cathy Lu is, give police a call and send her their way.

Detectives need to talk to her about the abandoned newborn that was found Sunday night behind the Woodside Houses.

She was just a few hours old, wrapped in a sheet and left lying in a grassy area.

Workers at Elmhurst Hospital say they got a lot of calls from people who want to adopt her.

That baby girl was released around 2 p.m. Thursday.

She is doing well and is now in foster care.

If you have any information about Cathy Lu please call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-Tips.
