PCSO: Parents of toddler found wandering in San Tan Valley won't face charges

SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said the parents of the 3-year-old girl found wandering the San Tan Valley area Monday morning, May 1, won't face any charges.

The PCSO said the girl's mother left the child at home with an older teen sibling while the father was on his way home from work.

"There was a miscommunication on who was looking after the 3-year old," the PCSO said in a news release. "We do not believe that there was any type of negligence."

Around 7:33 a.m., the child was found wandering the area of West Foothills Drive and North Butte and was taken to a PCSO substation.

At 10 a.m., a parent of the 3-year-old drove up to a deputy after seeing the PCSO post on Facebook asking for help in finding the girl’s parents.

"We want to thank everyone who helped us spread the word on social media," the PCSO said. "We also want to thank our dispatch team for monitoring all the social media tips that came in. And thank you to the citizen who dropped off diapers and clothes for the little girl."
