HOUSTON, TEXAS — According to NBC News, the body believed to be that of a missing Texas mother was found Thursday night near Houston, while her newborn has been discovered alive.

NBC News also reports Heidi Broussard's mother said police told her a body found in Jersey Village, Texas, is likely that of her daughter, who has been missing for a week.

It was just last night that Texas law enforcement investigators say they narrowed the scope of their investigation about the case of the missing mom and her infant daughter.

NBC affiliate KPRC reported Thursday night investigators were looking into a Houston home in the Rolling Fork neighborhood in connection with the missing mother and child.

Thirty-three-year-old Heidi Broussard and her daughter, Margot Carey, who was born Nov. 26, were reported missing last week.

Police say the two were last seen as Broussard dropped off a child at an elementary school. Broussard and the baby haven't been seen since.

FIB agent were also assisting in the missing persons case.

KPRC reports the one-month-old baby girl was found with "no obvious injuries or problems."
