Cold, hungry and dirty. Police in Florida say they found three children — the oldest of them 10 — wandering in woods near Punta Gorda. But by that point, other deputies had already found the kids' parents.
"Police originally arrested Michael and Sarah Butcher for illegally parking their truck in a private RV park. Good thing because just a short while later, they got a call that these three kids were found wandering the woods. They were ages six, eight and 10." (Via WCPO)
The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office says investigators believe the three children got away from Mom and Dad while the couple was smoking meth, and the family was living out of their truck filled with syringes and old food.
