A 23-year-old Waco woman has been arrested, accused of leaving her baby with a friend and not coming back.
Aunyonna Robinson has been booked into the McLennan County Jail on charges of abandoning or endangering a child.
Waco police got the case October 3, 2017 on a CPS referral.
At the time officers learned that the eight-month old child had been left with an acquaintance of Robinson for over five days.
CPS had reported that the child was OK and had been well cared for but that the mother had not checked on her and that the person caring for the child had not been prepared for long term care of the little one.
After an investigation, police obtained an arrest warrant for Robinson just after the first of the year.
CPS at least initially left the child in the care of the person with whom it had been left after determining that the person could properly provide care.
Robinson was arrested and booked into the jail on Monday.
