Video captured by a Border Patrol officer that is now circulating social media shows a young boy, tears streaming down his face, who had apparently been abandoned alone in the desert in Texas along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

"I came with a group, they dumped me and I don't know where they are," the minor said between sobs to a motorist who was in the area. "They can rob me, kidnap me. I am afraid," the boy told an off-duty Border Patrol officer he came across. The boy was seen in the video walking down an empty dirt road. 

The child, believed to be between 10 and 12 years old, was taken to a nearby Border Patrol station. He had spent the night in the desert, full of rattlesnakes and wild animals, according to Univision.
