After an unidentified little girl was brought to a local fire station, The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office says they are in contact with who they believe is the toddler’s mother.

On Tuesday, the sheriff tweeted that they are working to confirm the relationship of the woman to the girl. 

On Monday, the Sheriff’s officials asked for the public’s help identifying a baby girl, who had been left with a random citizen by an unknown Hispanic woman.

The man who was left with the toddler reported being in the parking lot of a nearby Walmart, police say. He brought the girl to the fire station around midnight and was interviewed for over an hour as the toddler bonded with the firefighters in the station, according to the fire department.

The man told police the woman jumped into his car with the child, claiming she needed help and fled in another vehicle that was already occupied by two others.

The girl appeared to be in good health and there is no evidence that the child had been mistreated prior to being abandoned.

Authorities ask that anyone who recognized the child call the sheriff’s office at (916) 874-5115. Information can also be phoned into Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP.
