Child found wandering in sub-zero temperatures

WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita police are investigating after they found a 4-year-old girl wandering in the bitter cold on a south Wichita street wearing pajamas.

Authorities believe the girl’s parents and sisters were inside the apartment when she walked a least a block near 55th South and Broadway.

Police found the girl wearing only pajamas and tennis shoes.

She directed them back to her home about a block away where police found her 23-year-old mother and 27-year-old father and twin 2-year-old sisters.

“This is obviously an extreme weather conditions that we’ve had, we’ve got significantly low temperatures and dangerous wind chills and parents need to be very vigilant to watch out for their kids,” said Lt. Doug Nolte, Wichita Police Department.

The 4-year-old child was found without any injuries.

Police took all three children into police protective custody. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
