Manatee County deputies say two young kids were found wandering around a neighborhood.
A woman in Oneco said she found the kids crying on her doorstep. The 5-year-old and 6-year-old told her they were brought to the area with their father, who went inside a house and left them outside.
The children wandered off and were found by the woman shortly after 10 Tuesday night.
Deputies have searched the area, and so far, they haven't been able to find the dad. However, officials told us Wednesday morning that the kids' mother apparently came forward.
She said she was doing laundry when the father left with the children.
