DALHART -- The baby who was found in a dumpster last month, is now out of the hospital.

We spoke with Chief Gary Sinclair earlier today. He said the child is now in foster care.

The newborn was in a dumpster for about six hours before he was found.

The baby's mother, 21-year-old Shonnie Smalley is charged with injury to a child.

The investigation is ongoing.
