Composite sketches released for parents of 'Baby Chloe'

HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Harris County Sheriff investigators hope a local sketch artist can help them find the biological parents of a little girl known as "Baby Chloe."

Baby Chloe was found wrapped in a plastic shopping bag at an apartment complex on February 19.

Child care workers named her "Baby Chloe" then allowed journalists to take her picture in an effort to find her biological parents.

And like so many Fox 26 viewers, a woman named Lois Gibson saw the picture and fell in love.

"My boss at this job is Chloe," Gibson said. "Not some captain or lieutenant. It is the needs of that little girl who is helpless, but I am not helpless."

Gibson has helped investigators solve dozens of high profile cases over the years.

"In 2007, I did the "Baby Grace" case," Gibson said.

"It was an unidentified murdered little baby girl. She washed up on Galveston shore in a blue utility box, and she was severely decomposed. I was able to look at her at the morgue, take pictures and in 45 minutes I did a drawing that in 3 days identified the murderers because the girl's grandmother recognized (features in) the picture I did."

"Baby Grace" was a little girl named Riley Ann Sawyers. Her mother and stepfather were both convicted of capital murder and were sentenced to life in prison.

Gibson hopes someone will recognize the features in her latest sketches and help investigators find "Baby Chloe's" biological parents.

There has been criticism. Many social media users noticed similarities in both the male and female versions.

According to Gibson, that was her intent.

"All I had was Chloe's features, and I made her look like an adult," she said. "One (sketch) was a male. One was a female. "
