RCMP are asking for the public's help in a nearly four-year-old case involving the discovery of an infant boy's body a snow bank near Salisbury.

The remains of the newborn, nicknamed Baby Taylor, were found by four people on all-terrain vehicles on Taylor Road near Mont Eagle on April 4, 2009.

Investigators have determined the body could have been left near the remote logging road anytime between October 2008 and its discovery, Sgt. Noël Cyr stated in a news release.

The child's parents have still not been identified, despite the ongoing investigation and tips from the public, he said.

"The public's help remains crucial in order to determine how and when the infant died, and to find his parents," said Cyr. "The police are asking for your help in solving this case."

Police have not said whether the child was stillborn, killed after birth, or abandoned while still alive.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP detatchment in Salisbury or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
