A body believed to be a missing Texas mother was found Thursday night near Houston, while her newborn was found alive, a family member said.
Heidi Broussard’s mother said that police told her a body found in Jersey Village, Texas, is likely that of her daughter, who has been missing for a week.
She said that police said that the medical examiner needed to officially confirm the identity of the body found in a car trunk. The newborn was found in a home in good condition, police said.
Heidi Broussard, 33, and her child were last seen in Austin, Texas, around 7:30 a.m. on December 12, when Broussard dropped her 6-year-old son off at an elementary school, police reported.
