Originally, the identity of the woman and child were unknown.

The identities of the child or the woman are now unknown.

A woman is facing a child abandonment charge after she was caught on camera leaving a two-year-old boy on the doorstep of a Texas home this past Wednesday night.

However, the father of the boy said the woman was a friend who dropped off the child at the wrong house.

Authorities say the father was expecting the child to be dropped off Wednesday afternoon. Spencer, who is a father, said the video was disturbing to watch.

The woman in the video has been identified and detectives plan to interview her.

The incident was recorded on surveillance video. The child is now in the care of Child Protective Services. He hadn't been home when police first canvased the area.

Investigators said they aren't sure why the woman ran away.

Reporters who were in the neighborhood Thursday spoke to a man who identified himself as the boy's father after recognizing his child from the doorbell video. Child protective services took custody of him and worked to reunite him with his family.

The woman could potentially be charged with child abandonment, which is a felony of the third degree in Texas.

The incident took place in Spring, Texas, at around 8:20 p.m. on October 17.

The 911 caller advised that she heard a knock at her door and when she went to answer the door she found a 2 year old black male child standing at her door with no adult. The suspect is observed running toward the front door of the residence while lifting the child in the air by one arm. The incident lasted less than 30 seconds. "Every time I watch the video, I get more and more madder because if that was her child she would have not left him".

Spencer said the child was not dropped off as planned as the mother was admitted to hospital, therefore she arranged a friend to drop the boy off at his father's house.
