Daycare director charged with leaving child on van

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - Police in Paducah have charged a child care
center director with leaving a young child aboard a van.

WPSD-TV in Paducah reported Tanashea Young was charged with
3rd-degree criminal abuse after she dropped off children at the
Children's Creative Learning Center, then took the van with a
three-year-old boy aboard to a car dealership to have new tires
installed.

When Latisha Maxie came to the center to pick up her son on
Monday, he couldn't be found.

Police said the child was found still in the van when mechanics
lowered a lift it was on. The boy was asleep.

Investigators said Young claimed she knew the boy was still in
the van.
