AMSTERDAM — Belgian police are still not sure who the parents are of a week-old baby found in a cardboard box at a train station on the Dutch-Belgium border on Sunday.

The baby was found alive on Sunday morning at the train station of Essen.

Police conducted a search of the area — including a train that had arrived from the Dutch city of Roosendaal — but to no avail.
 
However, the baby boy, barely a week old, was given a name on Monday.

The Essen Mayor registered the baby with the city's population register, naming him Jasper van Essen.

He was named after Marc Jaspers, who is leading the investigation.

A juvenile court judge will issue a ruling over the fate of Jasper in a couple of days.
