BRECKENRIDGE HILLS, Mo. (KSDK) - Police say they may have found the father of an infant abandoned in the hallway of an apartment building in northwest St. Louis County early Friday morning.

The child's photo has been circulating and police have asked for anyone with information to call them.

On Friday night, Breckenridge Hills police received a phone call from a possible relative of the child who said the baby's father lives in Oklahoma.

Police tracked down the man who said the mother of his child left with him from Oklahoma mid-week.

The man is currently en route to the St. Louis area. Police will need to confirm that the man is indeed the father of the child, possibly with a DNA test.

The mother of the child has not been found.

The child was found strapped in a car seat in the hallway of the Hickory Trace Apartment building in the 3500 block of Dehart Place. He was taken to DePaul Hospital where doctors determined he is in good health.

Police still ask for anyone with information or tips in the case to call them at 314-426-1214.
