Mother Arrested After Toddlers Found Wandering Alone In Lexington

An investigation is underway in Lexington after two young boys were found wondering alone Tuesday afternoon.

The children, around ages 2 and 3, were found near Elkhorn Creek at 1:30 P.M. Police say they somehow wandered out of a room at a nearby Knights Inn.

A passing driver saw the boys playing in a storm drain and called police. Both children were wearing only a t-shirt and a diaper.

Police searched several hours for their parents. One of the boys' fathers eventually arrived at the scene.

A woman inside the motel room where the boys came from was arrested. She's charged with child endangerment and possession of marijuana.

The boys are now in state custody while the police investigation continues.
