Kari said the young woman then came back and requested her to continue watching over the baby as she went into the church where she had left her mother to collect her baby’s change clothes.
She said the woman never came back and she has now been forced to abandon her business that she she operated from dawn to dusk to take care of the toddler.
The stressed elderly woman says that she has now been forced to close her business to take care of the child who needs attention always.
She urged members of the public who may have information on the whereabouts of the mother to report to the nearest police station so that they can be reunited.
