Police make appeal for information about toddler's death

POLICE have made a desperate appeal for information as they hunt for the person responsible for the death of Melbourne toddler Sanaya Sahib.

The 15-month-old girl's body was found in Darebin Creek, Heidelberg West, in the early hours of Sunday.

Sanaya's mother, Sofina Nikat, 22, said her daughter was snatched by a stranger from her pram.

Police have searched the toddler's home but say their only suspect is the attacker, described as a barefoot man with dark skin between the ages of 20 and 30.

Police said he was wearing black pants and a black zipper top, and smelled heavily of alcohol.
