Police in Bahrain and Kuwait are looking for the parents or caregivers of a toddler and a child found abandoned in two separate cases.

In Bahrain, the police are still trying to identify a two-year-old girl found walking near a petrol station on a busy highway.

Police said that the toddler was found on Saturday afternoon and that she was wearing pink pants and a gray jacket.

She was initially taken to the Southern Police Directorate and the interior ministry circulated the information it had about her on its Twitter account and through the media.

However, as no relatives or caregivers came forward to claim her, she was transferred to a childcare centre in Manama after she was given a thorough medical check-up.

A police officer said that they called in expatriates from various nationalities to speak with the girl and find out her native language.

However, the attempt failed and the mystery about her identity remained unsolved.

In Kuwait, a local daily reported that a three-year-old boy was found seemingly abandoned by his parents in a park.

The police could identify him as Jasem, but had no other information about his identity or about who abandoned him.

His picture will be circulated in schools in a bid to have relatives or neighbours identify him, Al Rai website reported.
