ROSENBERG, Texas – A woman accused of hitting a toddler in the face is now on Fort Bend County’s Most Wanted list.

Christi Gary, 33, is charged with injury to a child and has been on the run for more than a year, deputies said.

Gary is accused of striking a child and leaving a handprint on the toddler’s face on Mother’s Day of last year.

Investigators said she was babysitting the little girl and called the child’s mother to say she had fallen off a countertop.

The mother immediately took the girl to a doctor who said the child had been struck. The mother of the child said she was horrified when she saw that her little girl had been hurt.

The alleged incident happened at an apartment complex where Gary had been watching the child since she was born.

Police have not been able to find her, so she was added to the "10 Most Wanted" list by Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers.
