Australian police have urged the mother of a baby found dead and buried in the sand at Sydney's Maroubra beach to come forward.
The body, which was discovered by two young boys, was buried under 30cm (12in) of sand, police said.
Police said they could not immediately tell the age or gender of the baby, as the body was badly decomposed. A post-mortem examination will be conducted.
It comes a week after a newborn was found alive in a drain in Sydney.
"Come and talk to us, seek some advice, we need to talk with you," said New South Wales state police commissioner Andrew Scipione. He also asked that anyone who might know the mother to speak to authorities.
