Update: Mom who says she left missing toddler in stroller is behind bars for child endangerment, making false report [Police]

A Texas woman who told police she left her toddler daughter alone for a few minutes on Sunday at a College Station park has been arrested, while police continue to search for the little girl.

According to authorities in Brazos County, 21-year-old Tiaundra Kae Christon was arrested Monday morning and charged with child endangerment after her 2-year-old daughter, Hazana Anderson, disappeared early morning Sunday at Gabbard Park. She’s also been charged with making a false report to police/law enforcement employee. Police didn’t specify the details involving the false report charge.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Christon said she left Hazana in her stroller at around 8 a.m. on Sunday, then went to her car in a nearby parking lot to get a bottle. When she returned a few minutes later, Hazana was missing. Police combed the park thoroughly on Sunday but didn’t locate her.

Search efforts to find Hazana expanded Sunday night to include surrounding neighborhoods.
