A Wichita Falls woman is arrested after police said two young children in her care were found walking around a neighborhood Saturday night.

Officers said just before 11:30 p.m. two children, under the age of eight tried to contact Courtney Maxey after waking up and not finding her inside the home.

Police said after trying to contact her, the pair tried to walk from the home they were at on 10th Street, to their grandparents’ home in the 2800 block of Conoco Street.

Someone spotted the children around midnight walking along the street and called the police.

The 32-year-old was taken to jail and was charged with child endangerment.
