Two Arrested After Missing Florida Children Found Abandoned at Park in Wisconsin

Two siblings were found abandoned at a Milwaukee park after the woman babysitting them allegedly drove them from Florida to Wisconsin, officials said Monday. 

Adalyn Jean Burkett was supposed to babysit the children, ages 1 and 2, overnight from Friday to Saturday, according to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office. The children’s mother, who said she believed Burkett to be a friend, allowed the 18-year-old woman to use her vehicle that night.
