Police have asked for public assistance to help locate the mother of the child, discovered by the residents of the home at about 5.30am.
``The male baby is of Pacific Islander or Samoan appearance and is believed to have been born in the past few days,'' a police statement said.
``The baby appeared to be in good health and was securely wrapped up in a basket. There was also a bag containing nappies, formula and bottles.''
