In 1986, a newborn wrapped in a red sweater was found abandoned in the bathroom of a fast-food restaurant in Pennsylvania.

Nearly three decades later, the baby is all grown up and looking for her biological mother — and tens of thousands of people are trying to help.

Katheryn DeprillTwenty-seven-year-old Katheryn Deprill began her quest on March 2 by posting a photo on Facebook.

The photo shows Deprill holding up a sign that says, “Looking for my birth mother … She abandoned me in the Burger King bathroom only hours old, Allentown PA. Please help me find her by sharing my post.”

A week later, Deprill’s photo has been shared nearly 27,000 times by Facebook users.

Deprill says she wants to thank her biological mother for “not throwing me away.”
