Assumption Deputies Find Diaper-Clad 2-Year-Old on Highway

LABADIEVILLE, La. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies say a 2-year-old wearing only a diaper was found standing alone in the middle of a state highway in Assumption Parish after leaving a home without being noticed.

Sheriff Leland Falcon said in a statement Wednesday deputies arrested 41-year-old Ivone Pina, of Labadieville (LAH’-buh-dee-vill), on a charges of child desertion.

Falcon said the child was supposed to be in Pina’s care, but deputies believe the 2-year-old had been gone for no more than 30 minutes from a home where Pina was watching the child.

When deputies spoke to Pina on Tuesday, Falcon says she told them she believed the child was still in the home.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Pina.
