When a 12-year-old Naugatuck girl suffered an asthma attack on Monday and needed to go to the hospital, her mother was nowhere to be found.
She had not heard from her for two days, Naugatuck Patch reports.
Later than night, police tracked down Brandy Siles, 31, at a bar, the Patch reports.
One of Siles’ friends found the girl home alone on Monday, suffering from the asthma attack, the patch reports. The girl was treated and fine, but this led to a missing person investigation into her mother’s whereabouts. She’d been gone since Saturday, which was unusual.
At 10:30 p.m., a person at Mr. D’s Tavern called police to say Siles was there, the Patch reports.
She told police she’d been in New Haven since March 5, that her car broken down and her cell phone was dead, the Patch reports. Why she was in New Haven, she did not say.
Siles was charged with risk of injury and impairing the morals of a child.
She is being held on a $10,000 bond and is due back in court on March 22.
The Patch reports that the Department of Children and Families was notified.
