Girl found alone outside home

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Niagara County Sheriff's deputies were called to an Upper Mountain Road home at about 4 p.m. Sunday for a toddler who was left alone outside.

A witness said they were walking by the home and noticed the 2-year-old girl sitting on the porch crying. The child went to the front door and knocked but no one answered, the witness said.

A captain with the Sheriff's Office entered the home and found the girl's parents sleeping in a bedroom. They were reportedly unaware the child was outside and thought she was in the room with them.

The deputy said the two parents, the father age 25 and the mother, 24, were warned of the dangers of a small child being outside alone.

Deputies also reported the incident to Child Protective Services. No charges were filed.
