Muscat: Even after 60 hours, police have not received any phone call or inquiry regarding the two Omani children currently at a child care unit in Al Khoud after they were found in the Qurum Natural Park on Saturday night.
"So far, we have not received any phone call or inquiry. The children are under the care of the Ministry of Social Welfare department's child care unit in Al Khoud. We are trying our best to locate the toddlers' parents," an official of the Royal Oman Police told Times of Oman.
According to the police, one boy is two-year-old and the other is just a year old.
Police had rushed to the Qurum Natural Park on Saturday night and tried to find their parents or relatives, but in vain. Later, they took the children in their care.
The authorities are baffled as no one has come forward to claim them so far. Meanwhile, the social networking sites are abuzz with reports and posts regarding the toddlers. While some are praying for them to be united with their parents, others are baffled about how someone can abandon them like that.
