Police LightMADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/16/19) — A Madisonville mother was arrested after police responded to a call concerning a 3-year-old girl and 1-year-old boy running across a busy street. The caller told police he previously saw the same children in similar situations.

According to a Madisonville Police Department arrest citation, the officer saw the 1-year-old in a wooded area off West Jagoe Street 7:21 a.m. Monday. He was wearing only a diaper and running barefoot through a thick, wooded area.

As the officer looked for the male, a female, also wearing a diaper, was seen crying, looking for her brother, according to the report. She ran across a busy residential street seeking her sibling, and then could not tell the officer her name nor mother’s name, saying “she did not know how to get home.”

“The little girl led me though the wooded area to Coleman Street, where I made contact with her mother,” the officer wrote. The little boy had already returned home.

The mother, identified as Ashley M. Wilson of Madisonville, told police the “children have gotten out without her knowledge on other occasions.”

Wilson was charged with second-degree wanton endangerment.
