"Why was the girl walking along a highway alone? Why was the girl out at 3 a.m.? Why were the parents not with her?" When I was a 4 yr old I demanded that I wanted to go see Grandma. I knew the way. No one stopped me on the road. Thank goodness for me my Mom found me....headed in the right direction to go to Grandma's house. However it was a long 10 mile walk to get there for a 4 yr old. And yes I did get my butt paddled for that stunt. This happened 58 yrs ago. So you see. Children can be devious and slip out of your sight. It is fantastic news that the child in the article wasn't killed by some molester or someone that wasn't watching the road. We also have bears and coyotes out there too that are hungry.

Totally agree, donlar and angeloschild! These types of "news" stories are not journalism, they are regurgitation of police reports. Pathetic!

Poor baby; she must have been so scared. Anything could have happened to her; it's a remote area; there are wild animals or passing cars. Thank heaven she was found safe. I hope the authorities investigate the parents. They just don't seem to train reporters to follow up on stories anymore. About three weeks ago in our neighborhood a man was found dead in an irrigation ditch. Aside from his name and age we never heard anymore about the story. I wrote an e-mail to the editor of the RGJ about reporters not following up; no response.

THIS is the story? Lazy news reporters! Why was the girl walking along a highway alone? Why was the girl out at 3 a.m.? Why were the parents not with her? How did police locate them? Are there charges pending? How about some actual news reporting here?
