* An Elizabethton couple reported
Monday to EPD Detective Anthony Buck that as they were leaving
White's Grocery on West Elk Avenue between 4-5 p.m., they
saw a child between the ages of 18 months and 2 years next
to the four lane. They stopped to check on the little girl,
who they said was very cold, dirty and without a coat. The
child was alone and unable to tell them where she lived. The
temperature was in the 30s and it had been snowing earlier,
according to the report. The couple checked the car washes
on Railroad Street in an attempt to locate a parent or guardian,
but were unsuccessful. The woman took off her coat and put
it around the child, who was cold to the touch. After some
time had passed, the couple said, an adult female started
yelling for the child from a house near the corner of Railroad
and McArthur streets. The couple told the officer that the
woman smelled of alcohol and appeared to be upset that the
child was with them rather than concerned for the little girl's
safety. The woman took the child and returned to the house.
The investigation is continuing.
