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

When the child was not dropped off as planned, Spencer said, the father assumed the mother had changed her mind and left the house for the evening.

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.

The dad lives next door to the home in the video, KTRK reported.

The child, the child's father and the woman in the video have all been identified but deputies are still trying to get in contact with the woman in the video to question her about the incident, according to Spencer.

She arrived at the home in a white passenger vehicle and was seen running toward the front of the home while lifting the child by one arm.

The toddler turns and stares after the woman as she runs then drives away.

The woman has been identified by police, but her name has not been made public. "The entire incident was captured on video surveillance and lasted 23 seconds", the sheriff's office said.

Investigators say the woman could face a felony charge for child endangerment.

Twitter Convinced Meghan Markle Is Pregnant in Princess Eugenie Wedding Photos
Security around Windsor was tight, with airport-style security checks and large numbers of police. Eugenie and her older sister Beatrice also do not complete royal duties for the Queen.

She left without verifying anyone was home or who she was leaving the child with.

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

Spencer said deputies canvassed the neighborhood when the child was found Wednesday night, but no one answered the door at the father's house.

Child Protective Services has since taken custody of the toddler and placed him in a foster home amid the ongoing investigation.

The child's mother is in the hospital.

A resident of a home in the Conroe-area community called sheriff's office deputies about 8:20 p.m. on Wednesday after finding the young boy on their front doorstep.

A spokeswoman for Child Protective Services told the Chronicle that the child was "safe, healthy, no signs of abuse and is happy", and that the department was investigating the circumstances around his care. She also left two bags behind.

The child was not physically harmed, Sheriff's Office officials said.
