Woman caught on camera abandoning 2-year-old on stranger's doorstep

Video of a Texas woman leaving a 2-year-old child alone at a doorstep has gone viral, with the explanation drawing even more anger. The father ultimately left the house for the evening, assuming that the mother had changed her mind about the drop-off.

About 12 hours after the incident unfolded, deputies said they found his father.

Texas police say a woman who left a toddler alone on a front porch simply took the child to the wrong house. She then turns and runs back to her auto, leaving the little boy on the porch, bewildered.

The woman has been identified by police, but her name has not been made public. The entire interaction lasts only 23 seconds. Investigators will interview her once they finish speaking to the child's mother, according to Spencer.

Detectives arrived to speak with the father, who said the boy's mother sent him a text saying a friend would drop him off in the early afternoon on Wednesday.

"I was gut-wrenched", Lt. Scott Spencer said of his reaction to the video.

"It was very alarming and very disturbing and my heart was hurting for that child", the lieutenant said about the surveillance video. The child's mother was in the hospital during the incident and later released Thursday morning.

A woman called 911 and said she found a boy on her stoop after hearing a knock at her door at 8:20 p.m., according to local law enforcement. When she spoke to a man named Willie Simmons, he said the child was his son.

"Deputies canvassed the area in an attempt to find anyone who knew the child but were unable to locate anyone". Suspect also has multiple tattoos on her right arm that can be seen in the video.

The sheriff's office said the child was uninjured and appears to be in good health.

The sheriff's office will continue to investigate.
