BRUNSWICK, Maine — Brunswick police went to Union Street at 7:38 a.m. Tuesday after a woman reported finding a 2-year-old girl walking in the middle of the road.
Officers were unable to locate the girl’s parents, so they returned to the police station with the child and the woman who found her, Brunswick police Cmdr. Marc Hagan said Wednesday.
Police took photos of the toddler and then went door-to-door in the area in which she was found, asking residents if they knew who she was.
At approximately 8:35 a.m., a woman who said she was the child’s baby sitter was found in an apartment at 92 Union St. The woman said she had been asleep and that the girl must have left during that time.
The child was left in the custody of her mother.
Police called the Maine Department of Health and Human Services and the incident remains under investigation.
No charges had been filed as of Wednesday morning.
