Four young children are in police protective custody after a four-year-old girl was found walking down the street in the middle of the night.

The incident happened in the 1400 block of North Volutsia around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities located  the child's home and found two 1-year-olds, and a six-month-old  inside the house without supervision.

All four kids were taken to Wesley for and check up.

Police said a 24-year-old mother left the kids alone around 5 p.m. on Friday. They are trying to locate her. No arrests have been made.

The Exploited and Missing Children's Unit is investigating the case.

Neighbors say they often see the kids playing unsupervised in the streets. Some say it was only a matter of time until something was done.

"I think they could have been ran over, kidnapped. I mean they should have been home with their kids. I mean, what kind of adults are they to not be home with their kids? " said one neighbor.
