The incident was a "lot to take in", Fuentes Jr. said to ABC30.

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. He saw that it was a baby dressed in a onesie without a diaper and lying on its back.

"You can see the umbilical cord attach to it, so this baby was barely born and I can't tell for how long but it had feces leaking from it's onesie", Fuentes told KGPE. The infant was just hours old and wearing soiled clothing in temperatures skirting 30°F, according to the California Highway Patrol Central Division. The pair unzipped the baby's flannel onsesie, and discovered the umbilical cord.

He immediately took the newborn to his vehicle to keep her warm and called the emergency services. Authorities are now looking for the newborn's mother. She is described as a Hispanic woman in her early 20s who left the scene in a small, white SUV.

May lukewarm about Corbyn's customs union call
It was one of five demands he said May must meet if she wanted to secure his backing for any revised Brexit deal. Boris Johnson said a permanent customs union would turn Britain "essentially into a colony of the EU".

Minutes before Fuentes called for help, a woman approached a man walking his dog in the area, the Madera County Sheriff's Office said.

When California Highway Patrol Officer Alfred Madina arrived on the scene, he wrapped the baby in a blanket. The sites are typically hospitals or fire stations.

Following a rise in newborn infants being abandoned in inappropriate locations, California introduced a Safe Surrendered Baby program in 2001, which was brought into law in 2006. Ironically, there was a staffed fire station within a mile or two, and Valley Children's Hospital is very nearby. Yahoo Lifestyle has reached out to the Madera County Sheriff's office for information on the baby and mother and will update this post when it responds.

An investigation has been launched to find out who abandoned the newborn baby.
