Jogger finds missing baby in isolated industrial park


HOUSTON (CNN) – A woman in Texas came across an unusual sight when she went for her morning jog.

Hong Nguyen found an 8-month-old baby girl strapped into a car seat, partially hidden in the bushes near the side of the road.

She immediately called 911 and stayed with the child until help arrived.

Authorities say the baby had been missing for about six hours after a man stole the car she was in from outside a gas station.

According to KTRK, police say Genesis Hailey was unharmed, aside from being hungry and suffering from several ant bites.

Genesis was found in an isolated industrial zone and they don’t know what could have happened if Nguyen didn’t stumble upon the child when she did.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
