CANADIAN COUNTY- Officials say they found a 2-year-old wandering the streets alone.

They say when they knocked on the door of the child’s home, the toddler’s mother didn’t even realize he was missing.

Police say they have arrested Tasheena Mounce.

This all happened on the 100 block of SW 15 terrace in Yukon, Okla.

Upon arrival, officers say they noticed Mounce’s home was infested with roaches. Police say the children were found wearing dirty diapers and were covered in flea bites.

The police report says Mounce’s children have wandered up and down the street numerous times, but one neighbor came to her defense.

“She does the best she can because she has five kids,” neighbor, Lorena Smith said. “She sends them to school well dressed.”

Mounce is accused of child abuse. She also had warrants out for her arrest for writing hot checks.
