2018 Abandoned "Baby" Halloween Challenge

Your challenge:

Write a story set on any Halloween night that is about a case of mistaken identity. Specifically a person has called the police, claiming to have seen or heard an abandoned baby. The X-Files crew are called in to assist the police when it turns out not to be a human infant. Instead it's [insert one of the beasties featured on this site]. Was it a case of a simple mistake on the part of the reporter, or something more sinister? And more importantly, what was it, and what do the X-Files characters do with it?

Note I: Crossovers are allowed

Note II: While normal human babies are not allowed, your creature can be a baby whateveritis
