PENSACOLA, Fla. (WPMI) A Pensacola woman has been arrested after leaving her three young children at home alone.
Just after midnight, deputies responded to the call of a child that was found. The caller said they saw a small child running down the street wearing only a shirt and a diaper. Deputies found the home where the 2-year-old lived and also discovered two other children, ages 4 and 6, unattended.
About an hour later the mother of the children, Amanda Lynette Wiggins, returned home. She told deputies she left just before the babysitter was to arrive. Deputies were not able to verify that story.
Wiggins is charged with three counts of child neglect. She's being held in jail without bond. The children were not injured and the Department of Children and Families responded and made arrangements for the children.
