ANNAPOLIS, Md. A newborn baby was left on the doorstep of a Maryland home, police said.

Officers were called at 6:37 a.m. on a report of an hours-old Hispanic male infant found outside a home on Forest Drive in Annapolis police said.

The infant appeared to be in good health and was taken to a hospital for care, police said.

Police said they are concerned about the health of the child's mother and are asking her to come forward to receive medical care.

"She may need medical attention or be a victim of a crime," police said in a statement.

Anyone with information about the mother's identity or her whereabouts is asked to call detectives at 410-260-3439.

"Please don't share personal information on our social media pages," police said in a statement.

Authorities said no one ever has to abandon a newborn baby in Maryland under the Safe Haven law -- a distressed parent who is unable or unwilling to care for their infant can safely give up custody of their baby, no questions asked.

Newborns can be left at hospitals or law enforcement stations.
