KERHONKSON, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York woman has been arrested after authorities say her two young children were found walking around a motel parking lot wearing only diapers.

New York State Police say 28-year-old Zoe Eichert was arrested Tuesday on child endangerment charges.

Authorities say Eichert, of Kerhonkson, left her two 2-year-old and 3-year-old children alone in a motel in Ulster County when she left for work just before 6 a.m.

Police say the children were found about six hours later wandering in the rain in the motel’s parking lot. They were wearing only diapers.

Eichert was released with an appearance ticket and is scheduled to face a judge on Jan. 8. A number listed for Eichert was not in service.

Officials said the children have been placed in a foster home.
