A posting on a website had a Brazilian baby up for sale because the little boy won’t let the parent sleep and police are now investigating.
The advertisement was posted on Tuesday on the OLX classified website, according to Mail Online. The ad reportedly features a few-month-old baby dressed in a blue outfit, alongside the caption: “Cries a lot and did not let me sleep and I have to work to survive.”
The ad was live for more than half a day on the site before the company withdrew it for breaching the terms and conditions by advertising “inappropriate content.”
The New York Daily News reports that police in Aparecida de Goiânia, in the central state of Goias, are investigating and police children protection officer Marcela Orçai said officers were now trying to track down the person who placed the ad.
“We are trying to locate the person who posted the advert. We believe that the individual may live in the Campos Eliseos neighborhood of the city but the address given does not exist. Also the phone number listed has no connection with the case,” Orçai said.
OLX classified website is the largest consumer trading website in the world with a presence in more than 100 countries. Each month the company reports that it receives more than 100 million users buying and selling goods and services on its free classified site.
