The skinny: Woman's post searching for mom goes viral

Unsolved mystery

Woman's post searching for mom goes viral

In 1986, a newborn wrapped in a red sweater was found abandoned in the bathroom of a fast-food restaurant. Nearly three decades later, the baby is all grown up and looking for her biological mother. Katheryn Deprill, 27, began her quest on March 2 by posting a photo on her Facebook page in which she held up a sign that said, "Looking for my birth mother. … She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me find her by sharing my post." Now, it has been shared nearly 27,000 times by Facebook users around the world. But there's still no sign of the mystery woman who left her in the restaurant bathroom.
