2 year old found wandering street
WALKER, La (NBC33) – A child was found walking the road way this morning with no parent in sight. A concerned citizen spotted the child and called the Sheriff’s Office for help.
When deputies arrived, they found a two-year-old child wandering down Duff Road. They searched door-to-door to try and find the child’s parents, but they were no where to be found.
Over an hour after the child was taken into the custody of the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, the father was located. He called police searching for his missing daughter.
When deputies arrived at the man’s home, they realized they had knocked on his door earlier, but there was no response. The man claimed he was watching TV, and that’s when the child must have slipped away.
The deputies searched the child’s room and found a marijuana “joint” lying on the TV in the room. He was booked at the Livingston Parish Detention Center.
