Boy left on Spring doorstep dropped off at wrong house, father says

Woman in Texas facing abandonment charge after allegedly leaving child alone on doorstep

"The 911 caller advised that she heard a knock at her door and when she went to answer the door she found a 2 year old black male child standing at her door with no adult", the statement says.

Surveillance video was released Thursday showing a woman running up to a Texas home, where sheriff's officials said she abandoned a small child and fled. He told detectives he was expecting his son to be dropped off by the mother in the afternoon, but when he wasn't, the father assumed plans had changed and left his home.

Deputies arrived and canvassed the neighborhood on Wednesday night, but did not find anyone who recognized the boy.

Video taken by the home's security system captured the woman dropping the child off.

It happened late Wednesday in the town of Spring, which is north of Houston, when the woman can be seen lifting the 2-year-old toddler by the arm and putting him on the porch, then ringing the doorbell and knocking.

Authorities say the woman appears to be her in her mid-20s to early 30s with multiple tattoos on her right arm.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office says the woman could be charged with felony child endangerment.

That directly contradicts MLB's statement on the matter, which ended with the phrase "we consider the matter closed ". The report said the man had a small camera and was texting frequently , but did not have a media credential.

Afterwards, the boy was taken into protective custody but within several hours, tips from the public identified him.

During a press conference Thursday, Lt. Scott Spencer with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office said the homeowner who discovered the boy immediately called law enforcement. The woman who dropped the boy off is a friend of the boy's mother, according to police. It's still unclear, however, why she left the boy alone on the porch.

The incident was recorded on surveillance video.

However, she left him at the neighbour's house by mistake.

Officials at CPS are working to reunite the child with his family.

The incident was reported about 8:20 p.m.at a home in the 30700 block of Legends Ridge Drive. "At that time child protective services were contacted, and the child was released to their custody".
