A 5-year-old girl was found wandering a parking lot and a 18-month-old toddler was found home alone at an apartment Friday morning in Fort Worth while their mother was at work, police said.
Police received a report of a girl wandering a parking lot by herself and without a coat on, police said. When police located the girl's apartment, they found the 18-month-old in a closet with no adults around, police said.
The children's mother had left them alone while she went to an all-night job, said police spokesman Officer Jimmy Pollozani.
The initial call came in about 6 a.m. in the 3600 block of Oak Tree Circle in southern Fort Worth.
Detectives from the Crimes Against Children Unit were on the way to the scene, Pollozani said.
Both children were unharmed although the 5-year-old was outside in the early morning cold weather, he said.
