CORBIN, Ky. (WKYT) – Deputies arrested a Laurel County mother Tuesday after they say her three-year-old son was found naked in the woods.

According to an arrest citation, deputies arrested 34-year-old Rebecca Young after being called out to the Corbin Manor Apartments.

Deputies say Young was upstairs and not watching her child when her son left the home wearing nothing.

The boy was reportedly away from the home for several minutes. Deputies say a neighbor found the three-year-old by a creek.

Investigators say Young never called 911 to report the boy missing.

Young is facing a criminal abuse charge.

Social Services placed her child with a family member.
