A six-month-old baby has been found dead in a Polytank filled with water at a construction site at Nkurakan community, Yilo Krobo Municipality in the Eastern region.

The baby went missing on Saturday May 6, 2023 but was found drowned in a Polytank erected about 8 feet tall above ground level next day Sunday afternoon.

The mother is said to have left the now deceased baby in the custody of other children to fetch water. But upon return, the children told her a man came around and picked the baby.

On that fateful Saturday, an intense search for the child proved futile.

Continuous search on Sunday found the baby drowned in a Polytank at a construction site near the house.

A ladder was used to climb the Polytank to get inside to retrieve the body of the baby.

The body has been deposited at the morgue of Eastern Regional hospital by Police to aide investigation.

The Police have not arrested any suspect yet.
