Police Identify Woman Who Abandoned Toddler On Porch [UPDATED]
Surveillance video out of Spring, TX captured a woman abandoning a 2-year-old child.
UPDATE: The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department says that the woman and the child in the video have been identified.
The 2-year-old boy's mother had asked a friend to drop off the child with the boy's father in Spring because the mother was in the hospital. Spencer says the friend left the boy on the front step Wednesday night without waiting for anyone to open the door.
The problem here is that the boy's father actually lives next door and he didn't realize what was going on until news crews showed him the footage.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call just before 8:30 p.m. in the 30700 block Legends Ridge Drive. The caller told deputies she heard a knock at her front door. When she answered to the door, she found the toddler standing with there with no one else around.
The clip shows the woman pulling up to the home in a white car. She runs toward the front door, picking the child up with one arm, ringing the doorbell, then running back to her car. All she left was two bags along with the abandoned child.
Authorities are asking for anyone with information to please come forward.
the woman appears to be in her mid-20s to early 30s with long hair that reaches her waist. She is black and has multiple tattoos on her right arm.
The woman and the child have yet to be identified.
