KEARNEY — Kearney police are trying to find the mother who delivered then abandoned two infants boys Monday at CHI Health Good Samaritan in Kearney.

At 1:09 p.m. Kearney Police Department officers were called to the hospital after the mother left the facility, abandoning the twins. The unidentified mother had earlier been admitted to the hospital, but provided staff with false information.

The babies are currently in custody of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

Monday's incident is believed to be the first time the Safe Haven law was applied at Good Sam since becoming law in 2008.

Anyone with information about the mother is asked to contact Kearney police at (308) 237-2104, Crimestoppers at (308) 237-3424 or KPD’s Facebook page.
