Police in the state of Texas, have launched an investigation to find the woman who shamelessly and heartlessly dumped a Two-year-old boy on a strangers doorstep.
The investigation comes after the owners of the house handed in CCTV footage into police when they found the scared little boy standing on their doorstep all on his own.
In the disgraceful footage which has since gone viral in the US and indeed around the world, the brazen woman is seen deliberately placing the boy on the doorstep before she rings the doorbell and knocks on the door.
The woman who is not believed to be the boy’s mother, is then seen making a dash down the driveway whilst the innocent child stands there sucking his thumb.
Following a brief pause a white car can be then seen quickly fleeing the scene before the homeowners open the door to find the infant boy.
According to reports in the US, the shocking incident occurred in the town of Montgomery and has now led to a police investigation.
It is believed that police have identified the woman in the video, but have refused to release her name to the media as an investigation into the incident is still ongoing.
Officers investigating the case say the young boy was apparently dropped off at a house which is located next door to his father’s home.
Reports say the boy’s father who shares joint custody, was scheduled to look after him that day as his mother went into hospital for treatment.
It is not yet known whether or not authorities will press charges against the boy’s parents as the boy’s father wasn’t at home at the time of the incident, whilst his mother was also in hospital undergoing treatment at the time.
However thankfully they have reported that he is doing well under the custody of social services.
