A Lake County woman is in custody after allegedly leaving her baby at a truck stop on El Centro Road north of I-80 in Sacramento.
Sacramento Sheriff's spokeswoman Lisa Bowman says the six-week old girl was left in a carrier on the sidewalk at the truck stop late Sunday afternoon.
"Witnesses had reported that 45 minutes earlier, they saw that a baby was with a male and a female subject and that both the male and the female just left in separate directions," Bowman said.
While deputies were still at the truck stop, 36-year-old Christina Reed came back and was arrested for felony child endangerment.
Police are looking for the baby's father, so they can question him. If you have any information, you're asked to call 874-TIPS.
