    GALVESTON, Texas -- A baby's body and car seat were found in Galveston, KPRC-TV reported.

    Galveston police said a couple driving around looking at wildlife spotted what they thought was a doll at about 9 a.m.

    Jesse Zaro said he got out to look at it and discovered it was a baby. He said he became ill, cried and nearly collapsed before telling his wife about the shocking find.

    He said he tried to flag down a truck, but called 911 when his wife found her cellular phone.

    Investigators said the baby boy was 3 to 6 months old with blond hair. Detectives said he suffered head trauma.

    A car seat was found about 20 feet from the baby's body, police said.

    Officials have not said how the baby's body or child seat got there.
    The Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office will determine the baby's identity and cause of death. Police hoping to identify the infant through footprints said they would consult with the University of Texas Medical Branch.

    Police Tentatively ID Father Of Dead Baby

    GALVESTON, Texas -- Galveston police want to talk to a 21-year-old man who may have been the last person to see a 3-month-old boy alive early Tuesday morning.

    A baby's body and car seat were found alongside a road near a utility pole at about 9 a.m. Tuesday, KPRC-TV in Houston reported.

    Police believe Travis "T.J." Mullis is the boy's father because the child's apparent mother identified a photo of the baby who was discovered.

    "He did leave with the child," Lt. Jorge Trevino said. "(The mother) expected him to return, and he did not return."

    The woman contacted police after she called hospitals looking for her son. A hospital called the Galveston County Medical Examiner, who called police.

    Mullis was last seen driving a silver, four-door 2002 Hyundai Accent with Texas license plate 067-RJP.

    Sgt. Jeremy Schwartz said, "The only thing that we have specific about it is it has some duct tape on the right rear passenger door handle."

    A man and his wife looking at wildlife found the little boy with blonde hair wearing a diaper. He was face-down in the grass. There was a child's car seat about 20 to 30 feet away.

    "I found a baby. I think it's a baby," Jesse Zaro said to a 911 operator. "I never seen nothing like this before. Oh, it's horrible."
    Police said it appeared that the child had been hit in the head.

    Trevino said, "It appears that it was in the car seat and then they were separated upon impact with the ground."

    An autopsy was planned for Wednesday morning. Police said that is when they will be able to positively identify the child and his parents.

    The apparent mother does not face any charges and has talked to police, officials said.

    Anyone with information on Mullis' whereabouts was asked to call Galveston police at 409-765-3662.
