Authorities are trying to identify the person who abandoned the infant.

The unidentified man told the mother to take her child to the fire station or a nearby children's hospital - but the women just drove away.

Fuentes described the "awful, chilling, moment" he was approaching a customer's house in his auto and saw something white moving in the road, which he initially thought was an animal.

Police are searching for the mother of a newborn who was abandoned in the middle of a road in California with her umbilical cord still attached. The infant was just hours old and wearing soiled clothing in temperatures skirting 30°F, according to the California Highway Patrol Central Division.

Aurelio Fuentes Jr. told the paper that he didn't know what he was seeing at first. But "as soon as I got out of the vehicle, I realized it was a real baby", he said.

The little girl was then rushed by ambulance to Valley Children's Hospital, where she remains in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit but is said to be "doing well". Although the baby is in good condition, she was admitted to the NICU.

Authorities are seeking the mother. Her physical description is not known, but she left the scene in a small white SUV, the Madera County Sheriff's Office said.

The woman was described by Madera County Sheriff's Office as a "Hispanic female adult, possibly in her early 20's". "We'd like to remind everyone that there are many safe surrender sites that will allow someone to surrender a newborn child without any questions asked".

"The man directed her to the fire station and the Valley Children's Hospital down the street, and suggested she take the baby there".
