Missing Mom of Two Abandoned Toddlers Found And Arrested

Posted: Updated:
South Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11/ CNS) A 32-year-old woman was identified today as the mother of two little boys who were found on a busy street in South Los Angeles, but police were still trying to find her.

Police said Sidnicka Wilson is the mother of the boys -- one aged about 3 and the other about 18 months -- who were found by a passerby around 9 a.m. Monday in the 600 block of West Manchester Boulevard.  Wilson remains missing and is being sought by police.

The children lived in a nearby apartment in the 600 block of East 85th Street, police said.

"Inside the apartment, it was in deplorable conditions, not fit for a child," LAPD Capt. Lillian Caranza told media sources. "On further investigation, they were able to determine that the two children resided at this location and that the 3-year-old, it wasn't the first time that he would wander into the liquor store to get a loaf of bread to feed himself and his sibling."

The man who found the children, Luis Rodriguez, told NBC4 he was working on his truck when he noticed the older boy riding a tricycle toward the road. Rodriguez said he then spotted the other child nearby.

Rodriguez said when he asked the older boy where they lived, the child pointed to a gate.
