On the night of October 17, a surveillance camera caught a woman abandoning a young boy on what is believed to be a random doorstep.

According to FOX 10, late Wednesday night, a camera caught a woman, described to be in her late 20’s or early 30’s, walking up to a woman’s doorstep with two bags and a two-year-old boy in tow.

The video then shows the lady dropping the two bags and the boy off on the doorstep, ringing the doorbell, and running back to her car before driving away.

The little boy can be seen in the video standing in front of the door as he watches the woman run away.

The reportedly unsuspecting owner of the home opened her front door when she heard all of the commotion. That’s when she found the little boy alone.

The woman eventually called 911 and the boy was deemed to be in good health. He is now in the care of Child Protective Services (CPS).

As FOX 10 reports:

The suspect appears to be in her mid-20’s to early 30’s with long hair reaching below her waist. The suspect also has multiple tattoos on her right arm that can be seen in the video.

Police have yet to publicly identify the woman and, as of the morning of October 18, are still looking for her.

However, according to FOX 10, the two-year-old’s father has since been found, as well as the boy’s mother, who was reportedly in the hospital.

The relationship between the boy and the suspect is unknown at this time.

The sheriff’s department wrote on Twitter:

[MCTX Sherrif’s Office is] investigating abandoned child. Deputies are hoping the public can help identify the woman in the video and pictures. She abandoned a two-year-old child at a residence in south Montgomery County last night.

It remains unclear if the father now has custody of the young boy.

If anyone has any information about the female suspect, authorities ask that you contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800.

UPDATE: Police say they've identified the woman, and they are still looking for her to interview her. The boy's family has been located.TODDLER ABANDONED: Authorities discuss the toddler who was abandoned at the doorstep of a Spring, Texas home. MORE: https://bit.ly/2Cs0F8s
