DESTIN – A 19-year-old Destin woman was charged with child neglect after leaving her child unattended, naked and hungry.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report did not say how old the child was.
The woman apparently took two bags of her possessions to a friend’s house and, from that, the deputy deduced she didn’t intend to return home.
Her mother called the OCSO the next day and said she’d found her daughter in the bed of a truck with other people and told her to come home.
When her mother told her to come home, she told the driver of the truck to drive away and he did.
She was not seen or heard from after this incident until deputies found her and arrested her.
