In a disturbing discovery, a premature baby girl was found abandoned on a trail in Katy, Texas, last Saturday.

Local authorities are conducting an intensive investigation to identify the person who left the newborn at the site.

The call to the sheriff’s office was made around 9 AM on Saturday, alerting authorities to the baby’s presence.

The events were narrated by Sergeant Juan García, from the Child Abuse Unit, who reported on the baby’s condition.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with the witnesses who found the baby naked and wrapped in a towel.

What happened to the little girl?

Immediately, emergency services transported the girl to a nearby hospital, where doctors reported that her condition is stable.

According to García, the newborn still had the placenta attached to her body, indicating that the abandonment occurred shortly after birth.

The investigation now focuses on identifying the person responsible for the abandonment.

«At this moment, we have an unknown man who left the girl at the site,» García commented.

What is known about the individual who abandoned the baby?

He added that there might be video footage of the individual, which could be crucial for the case.

The responsible party could face charges of abandonment and endangering a child.

Sergeant García emphasized the fortune that the baby was found quickly, especially considering the high temperatures in the region.

«It’s a blessing that the family found the baby,» he said. «The child had not been outside for very long.»

What options do women have?

In his press conference, García reminded the community about the existence of the Baby Moses Law.

This law allows parents to leave their babies in safe places such as hospitals, fire stations, and other emergency centers without facing charges.

This reminder underscores the importance of knowing the legal and safe alternatives available to those who cannot care for their children.

The mother who discovered the girl, visibly shaken by the situation, expressed her shock at finding the baby.

What were the latest details?

Sheriff Ed González, of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, shared updates on the abandoned baby throughout the weekend, calling on the community to provide any relevant information.

In a Facebook post, González described the man who left the baby as a young Hispanic or white male.

He is slim, light-skinned, with black hair, dressed in a black shirt and possibly gray pants.

Authorities have requested the public’s cooperation to advance the investigation.
