AR mother faces charges after child is found

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Jonesboro police found a small child walking the streets Thursday evening without any supervision. Now, the 4-year-old's mother is facing charges.

The child was in the care of his great grandmother at the time.

According to Early Hasley, somehow the little boy got out. When Hasley went to look for him, she could not find him.

"I guess so. I don't know (anything) about it. They were asking me why she did not take him with her," stated Hasley.

When Hasley could not find the child, she assumed he went next door to his aunt's house.

Sergeant Lyle Waterworth explained the mother faces charges because she did not leave her family with any contact information.

The little boy is now in the custody of Human Services.
