Police in North Carolina are searching for the mother of an unborn fetus that was found in a sewer pump station.

The News & Observer reports that Hillsborough police say they want to make sure the mother doesn’t have any medical problems after what might have been a miscarriage or an assault.

Lt. Davis Trimmer said police are very concerned about the mother.

Police said in a news release that a town utilities worker found the fetus about 10:30 a.m. Friday while cleaning out a pump station on Orange Grove Road. The station had last been cleaned out on Wednesday.
