Two-year-old girl found wandering streets

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL (WFLX) - An investigation is underway after Broward sheriff's deputies say a 2-year-old girl was found wandering the streets of Deerfield Beach all alone Tuesday morning.

Authorities say they don't know how the child got out of her home.

A neighbor says she found the girl near a road, busy with drivers, so she immediately pulled her out of harms way. After looking her over and realizing she was okay, she ran into another problem, the little girl wouldn't talk to her.

The neighbor called the cops. The girl wouldn't talk to deputies either, so they knocked on doors until they found her mother.

No word yet on if the mother will face any charges.
