Family Goes To Ill., Leaves 2-Year-Old In Wis.
KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin authorities say a family accidentally left a 2-year-old girl in Kenosha while 10 other kids were being taken to a birthday party in Illinois.
Kenosha police say the girl was found wandering in the street Thursday afternoon. She was unhurt.
The girl’s mother is a 27-year-old from Zion, Ill. She told police her family was taking 11 children to the party. The mother went to her sister’s home in Kenosha to pick up more youngsters and says the girl began playing with neighborhood children.
The mother says in the confusion of loading up the party-goers the girl was left behind. About 30 minutes later the family realized the girl wasn’t with them.
A Kenosha News report says the girl was returned to her mother.
