OSHKOSH -- Oshkosh police say they have located a Missouri man who they suspect left a puppy behind a truck stop trash bin.
 
Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports that police say they spoke to the man and he admitted he left the puppy. The investigation continues and no charges have been filed.
 
The two-week-old puppy was found July 10 in a black plastic bag at the Planeview Truck Stop. Police say a man is seen in surveillance video walking behind the trash bin with a dark object and leaving empty-handed.
 
Police say they've received many calls with tips. They traced the man to a Missouri trucking company.
 
The Oshkosh Area Humane Society is caring for the puppy named Hazel. She has a spinal injury and will need surgery for a broken pelvis.
