A 2-year-old boy abandoned Monday morning at a Mississipi Goodwill store has been identified. According to NBC 5, the child is now in the care of Mississippi Child Protective Services. Authorities have made an arrest in the case but so far, no names have been released.
Fox 8 reports that an unknown male walked the boy into a Goodwill store off of Stateline Road in Southaven around 10 a.m. on Monday. The man left the child in the store and drove away.
According to police, the boy was unable to give his name, but the man left a note on a paper towel and told a store employee that the child’s mother could no longer care for him. The man also left a bag with food and clothes inside.
Authorities said that the child wasn’t dressed for the cold weather and had no socks on, but he seemed happy and playful.
Surveillance cameras by the store caught the following images of the boy with a man and woman, and a car they may be traveling in.
