A 10-year-old boy abandoned near the Mexico border told patrol officers he was "afraid" as he begged for help in a newly released video.
The boy can be seen sobbing to officers as he explains that he had travelled to Texas without his parents in a group of migrants.
He woke to find himself completely alone and was discovered walking on a rural road in the hope of finding help, officials said on Wednesday.
A record number of unaccompanied children crossed the border in March and at least 19,000 are currently in custody, according to federal data.
