Police look for parents of abandoned children

Posted: Updated:

Portland, Ore. -Police are trying to solve the mystery of two young children and an infant officers found abandoned in a shed.         

Police say they found the children Thursday after a man reported hearing children's voices coming from the shed behind his southeast Portland property. Officers say a boy and a girl are both believed to be under the age of 3. The infant girl appears to be between eight and 15 months old. Police say they don't know if the children are siblings.         

Lieutenant Robert King says homeless people in the area told officers an unidentified woman dropped the children off the night before.         

The children have been taken into protective custody.
