HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Police have found the mother of the 2-year-old girl who was wandering alone outside in Hartford.
Once officers arrived, they say they made contact with citizens from the neighborhood who were with the child who they had seen walking by herself. Officers immediately went door to door looking for the child’s parents.
Detectives from the Special Investigation Division (SID) and members of the Department of Children and Families (DCF) were contacted and responded to the scene.
According to Hartford Police, with the help of the media, the mother of the child was located.
After an investigation, police believe the child had followed an older sibling out of their house on Shultas Place without the knowledge of the aunt, who was supposed to be watching the small child. Police say after extensive interviews with SID detectives, no criminal charges were pursued.
DCF continues to investigate the case.
