Authorities in southeast Texas have identified the woman who abandoned a toddler on the doorstep of a home.

According to the Montgomery Sheriff’s Office, the woman is not the mother of the child. They have identified her, but are not releasing her name. The investigation is still ongoing at this time. 

Security camera footage from Wednesday night shows the woman as she runs to the front door of a home in the city of Spring, just north of Houston. You see her lift the child by one arm to place him on the porch before ringing the doorbell several times and knocking on the door.

 However, before anyone answers, she runs back to a white vehicle and takes off.  The two-year-old boy is left behind on the front doorstep.

The homeowner said she didn’t recognize the woman or the child.

Deputies say the boy appears to be uninjured and in good health.
