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

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

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