Young Child Found Alone in Sparks, Father Arrested

Posted: Updated:

After finding a 3-year-old child wandering alone, Sparks police have arrested her father.

The child was found wandering in the area of Sullivan Lane and Byrd Drive, near an apartment complex at 1800 Sullivan at about 8:45 p.m. Sunday evening.

Officers checked the apartment complex and surrounding areas but found no one looking for the child. Officers also tried to have the child lead them to her home, but that was not successful.

At about 1:30 a.m. Monday, David Hart called 911 saying his daughter had been missing for 3 to 4 hours.

After further investigation, police took him into custody for child neglect saying he put his daughter's life in danger. Hart has a prior arrest in 2007 for child neglect.

A woman claiming to be the child's mother has since contacted us to say that that father fell asleep, and that the child is ok.
