El Paso, TX (KTSM) — El Paso County Sheriff's Deputies are looking for a man wanted for abandoning and endangering a child.
Deputies said, back in March 2013, Socorro police officers were checking out a vehicle in Socorro when they found a young child sleeping in the backseat. After investigating, they found that the child's father, Jesus Hernandez, 47, was inside a bar nearby and left the child alone in the vehicle for more than an hour. Hernandez was arrested.
He has recently failed to appear in court and has a warrant for his arrest.
If you know where he may be, you're asked to call El Paso Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS (8477).
