PORT VINCENT, LA (FOX44) -- In the woods in Livingston Parish a Good Samaritan finds a naked toddler and calls 911.
The Livingston Parish Sheriff's office is charging Morgan Patterson with one count of child desertion. They say she fell asleep, and that's when the 2-year-old wandered away from their Port Vincent home without clothes.
Neighbors don't know this family, but they want to know how they let this happen.
"It's really surprised,” Timothy Kane, neighbor, said with shock. “I mean, that's not something we have in this area very much. I can't say very much. We've never had it happen in this area. That's very odd. I can't believe it. "
The toddler is currently in the custody of children and family services. The case is still under investigation.
