WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have placed two toddlers in protective custody after they were found crying and wandering outside a home.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/19kf5U0 ) a neighbor spotted the 1-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl Wednesday morning and called 911. Lt. Doug Nolte says responding officers then found the children and began looking for their home.
They spotted an open door to a house in a block next to Interstate 35. Nolte says several adults inside the home were “unresponsive due to alcohol and/or drugs.” He says the toddlers had awakened and wandered outside in search of something to eat.
Three people were arrested, including a 23-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man. Nolte says the children’s 21-year-old mother wasn’t arrested.
