NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - New London police say a 4-year-old girl is being treated for hypothermia after she was left unsupervised as her mother smoked marijuana.

Twenty-three-year-old Rebecca Reyes was arrested Friday and charged with risk of injury to a minor and reckless endangerment.

Reyes called police at 3:38 a.m. to say that one of her three children was missing. Police say she told them under questioning that she had left her children alone in the house when she left to smoke marijuana.

The girl was found by police in the doorway of a neighbor’s home wearing a long-sleeve T-shirt. At the time the temperature was 3 degrees. The girl was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

It was not immediately known whether Reyes has an attorney.
