Auckland City Police convened Tuesday a team of investigators, trying to find the mother of a three year-old Chinese girl abandoned at a Melbourne railway station on Saturday morning.

Officer in charge of the team, Detective Senior Sergeant Simon Scott, said Police are concerned for the safety of Anan Liu, believed to be the 27 year-old mother of the little girl dubbed " Pumpkin" but whose full name is Qianxun Xue.

Qianxun is confirmed by police to be the daughter of a New Zealand magazine publisher Nai Xin Xue, 54, and his wife.

Xue had left his daughter at Melbourne's Southern Cross railway station, before boarding a plane to the U.S. on Saturday.

The police said they have visited addresses in Auckland and Wellington, finding no sign of the child's mother, Anan Liu.

"We have been to the Mt Roskill address that Anan Liu is last known to have lived at but, as yet, we haven't been able to locate her," said Detective Senior Sergeant Simon Scott.

"At this stage we are viewing her as a missing person and will re-evaluate that as our inquiries progress," said Scott.

"We are working closely with the Melbourne Police and have been in contact with them this morning to gather and share as much information as possible," said Scott.

He said the ultimate aim was to reunite Qianxun Xue with family.

New Zealand National MP Pansy Wong said Xue was an active member of the Chinese community and described his wife as a very private person.

The mother was believed to have been an international student in New Zealand about five years ago when she met Xue, who is believed to have flown on to Los Angeles and American authorities have been alerted.
