No DNA match yet for Baby Kimball

King County Sheriff’s deputies now have DNA profiles that could connect an abandoned infant, found February 12 in North Bend, with the people who left her.

The baby, a girl believed to be full term, was dead when she was found in a wooded area near the Kimball Creek Bridge. Deputies named her for the area.

A scientist with the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab used evidence at the scene to develop the profiles. So far, there are no matches, but detectives hope the profile will help locate and identify those who abandoned her.

Anyone with tips on the case is asked to call (206) 296-3311.
