HOUSTON (CBS Houston) The Harris County Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit is asking for the public’s help in gathering information on a newborn child found abandoned at the Park Center Apartments.

The baby was found on Beamer Road in southeast Harris County over the weekend.

“Harris County Precinct 2 Constables responded around 10:00 am on Saturday, June 29,2013, after a witness called 911 and reported finding the newborn next to a trash container,”added HCSO officials.

“The baby was found wrapped in a black t-shirt and appeared to be less than a few hours old. The infant was examined by medical personnel and was in a healthy condition. He was transported to Texas Children’s Hospital by ambulance.”
