Investigators were looking for the girl's mother, who they believe may have lived in one of the houses in the 1600 block of East Palm Street. "The investigation is still ongoing, and detectives are attempting to find the mother to determine what may have happened," said Santa Ana police Cpl. Jose Gonzalez.

"If you find the right collaborators," says the soft-spoken Gonzalez, "anything is possible."
