died, are imprisoned, are mentally ill, or have  been  committed  to  an
institution,  or  because  they have abandoned or deserted such child or
are living outside the state or their whereabouts are unknown,  or  have
designated the person pursuant to title fifteen-A of article five of the
general obligations law as a person in parental relation to the child.
  d.  The term "health practitioner" shall mean any person authorized by
