When Parker arrived at the residence, he told police that when the mother left, the child was still asleep, so he went back to bed. He also said that when he woke up and didn’t see the child, so he thought someone had come and picked her up. He told police he had left to go to the food stamp office.

Parker was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor.
