Detectives are searching for the person who abandoned a newborn on April 30 at Hawaii's Sandy Beach Park.

Officials with the Department of Human Services say the baby girl was not injured, but is under observation at the Queen's Medical Center.

"I think first and foremost, we're happy to report that the female infant is doing quite well. She's drinking formula, weighs approximately 8 pounds," said Patricia McManaman, the Director of the Department of Human Services.

McManaman says the baby girl appears to have been born a week or two early and was delivered within the last 24 hours.

The infant was reportedly discovered unclothed at Sandy Beach by a 21-year-old woman who heard a baby's cries coming from the shoreline and found the infant alone in the sand.
