HASTINGS, Minn. (AP) - A Lakeville couple is accused of endangering their two young children by living in a car for days without much food or proper hygiene.

Authorities say Zachariah Wilson and Angela Dee Robinson and their children, ages 4 and 7, were found Tuesday in south Minneapolis - about five days after Wilson’s mother reported them missing.

A delivery driver saw the family at a Minneapolis loading dock about 3 a.m. Tuesday and called police. A criminal complaint says the couple fled, but were later pulled over by officers. Police say the children were filthy and smelled.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/2eZh5Ga ) says the older child told a social worker the family had been driving around in the car and slept in it, often without something to eat. It was not immediately clear if the parents had hired attorneys.
