DCS Investigates After Toddler Wanders Away

The Department of Children's Services is looking into a case in which a three-year child was found wandering along a Putnam County road. According to a report by the sheriff's department, the child was alone and dressed only in a T-shirt when he was spotted walking along Herbert Garrett Road. A teenager came out of a nearby home and got the child out of the street, while the passerby called police. Deputies say an investigation revealed that the man who was supposed to be watching the child was apparently outside grilling and had not noticed that the toddler had wandered off. No word yet on whether any charges will be filed.
