Audio: New Mexico deputy finds 1-year-old home alone

New Mexico

The San Juan County Sheriff’s office released the audio of a deputy reporting back to dispatch after finding a one-year-old home alone. 

“Well, the baby’s here lying on the bed at her house all by itself,” the deputy says. 

The sheriff’s office said the mother was drunk at a family member’s house when she reported she couldn’t find her little girl. So, a deputy went to check out the woman’s home where he found the baby. 

The sheriff’s office says the deputy cared for the child until a sober family member was able to pick her up.
