    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.
