Authorities Search For Abandoned Baby’s Parents

CYPRESS, Texas (AP) — Investigators searching for the parents of a newborn girl abandoned near a Houston-area apartment complex have released a forensic artist’s renderings of what her parents might look like.

The baby, named Chloe by caregivers, was just more than an hour old when she was discovered Feb. 19 wrapped in a plastic bag at the Cypress complex.

The baby born with one bottom tooth still had her umbilical cord attached when she was found. She is currently in foster care.

Deputy Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office says authorities are trying to track down leads to discover her identity. The sketches were released last week.

He says whether anyone will be charged in the case will be up to the district attorney once the circumstances are determined.
