LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln woman whose 4-year-old daughter was found wandering a city street earlier this week has been cited on suspicion of child neglect.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1KSE4la ) that a passerby alerted police that the child was walking around alone and had crossed several streets on Thursday afternoon. Police spokeswoman Katie Flood says the child was found about a block from her home.

Officers later found the girl’s 27-year-old mother, who told police the girl was sick and had been left at home while the mother went to pick up another child from school.
