New video from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection appears to show an abandoned 10-year-old migrant child at the border.

The agency shared the video of the 10-year-old — who was found alone in a field on April 1 — after being left by the group he was traveling with.

The boy was still in CPB custody as of Monday — while the agency worked to turn him over to the Department of Health and Human Services.

The full circumstances about the situation aren't known — including how and why he came to the U.S. or if this was a case of “self-separation.”

The video comes amid an influx of children entering the U.S. alone and news that migrant families are self-separating in Mexico. Border patrol says it’s seeing hundreds of cases in South Texas of children apprehended crossing the border alone after previously being expelled with their family.
