Harris County Sheriff's deputies are searching for a man they say left his 10-month-old baby boy in a strip center parking lot. It happened earlier this month on West Road near Steeplecrest in northwest Harris County.

Officers say Billy Joe Davis, 34, took off after dumping his infant son, still in his car seat, outside a convenience store. The child's mom was inside the store and had left the two in the car after an argument with Davis.

A couple nearby saw the incident and stayed with the child until his mother came out of the store.

Davis is charged with endangering a child. If you have any information on his whereabouts, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. You never have to give your name and you could receive a $5,000 cash reward.
