PHOENIX - Phoenix police are trying to locate the parents of a young girl who was left at a fire station .
The girl is believed to be 4 or 5 years old but possibly younger.
According to Sgt. Steve Martos, the girl may have some type of cognitive impairment and has been unable to provide her name or her parents' names.
However, police say they now know her name, but won't release it or say how they found it out.
An African-American man in his 40s walked up to the station with the girl Wednesday night, saying the girl's mother wasn't taking care of her. He then left without the girl.
Police then canvassed the neighborhood and distributed flyers.
People living in the area are doing their best to help police in their search for the girl's mother.
Denise McKinley can't help but think of her own children when looking at the photo of the young girl.
"I hope that someone comes forward, I really do," she said.
The girl is now in the custody of state Child Protective Services.
