A 4-year-old girl was located early Monday in the middle of “a vast desert” in Southern California after being abandoned by a group of smugglers.

NBC San Diego reported that the girl was with a group near the U.S.-Mexico border. When border agents moved in on the group, the smugglers jumped into a car and fled.

The child was left behind holding her birth certificate, which said she was from Guatemala. She was reportedly in good condition and was provided food.

“Who in their right mind abandons a four-year-old little girl in the middle of a vast desert,” one U.S. Customers and Border Protection agent said in a statement. “It sickens me to think that someone would leave a child that young to fend for herself.”

The report said the child is with health and Human Services and will attend an immigration status disposition
