Wandering toddler found; mother facing charges

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Shippensburg woman may face charges after her 2-year-old daughter was found alone outside their Southampton Township home last week.

State police in Carlisle say the youngster was found on the side of a street outside homes around 8 a.m. Friday in the 100 block of Timber Lane. Authorities say the toddler was not dressed for the cold morning temperatures.

After knocking on several doors, the youngster’s mother was located. She told police she had been sleeping. Her name has not been released.

State police say they contacted Children and Youth Services when they found the family’s home unsuitable for the child because of unsanitary conditions.

A CYS investigation continues.
