Kansas City, KS -- The mother of a 2-year-old found naked and wandering at night in Kansas City, Kan., says she thought the boy was safely asleep at home.
A driver took the toddler to a fire station after spotting him around 1 a.m. Saturday in 40-degree weather a half-mile from his home. He's now in protective custody.
The mother tells KCTV she had gone out and left the boy with her older children, ages 9, 14 and 15. She says she returned less than an hour later and assumed the toddler was asleep with his sister.
The mother reported the boy missing nearly 10 hours after he was found. She says she's "so sorry" she's not with her son now. Police are studying possible charges.
