(ABC NEWS) -- Authorities are calling her "Baby Chloe", and say she is a survivor with a precious smile, who is getting a second chance at life.

Authorities are calling her "Baby Chloe", and say she is a survivor with a precious smile, who is getting a second chance at life.

Last week, a woman walking her dogs found the infant outside an apartment building. She was just a few hours hold, weighted just four pounds and was born pre-term.

To solve the mystery, and find the baby a home, investigators are working with sketch artist Lois Gibson. Gibson is using the baby's photo to interpret what her parents might look like.

Gibson is focusing on the baby's smile.

"She had such a wonderful smile, that whoever the mommy or daddy were, people would think of that smile," Gibson says, "I try not to think of the negative, but I will sleep better at night if that baby Chloe is able to find a home for good."

Investigators are also looking closely at an early tooth. It is a rare trait, seen in just one out of every two thousand births, and it is tied to family history.

Across Texas, people say that they cannot believe that no one has come forward.

If investigators can identity a mother or another relative, it is possible they will claim her, or allow another family to have custody of the child.
