"I Think Mommy's Dead" Child Tells Texas Cops After Very Young Siblings Found Left Alone for Days!

It was a frightening sight when teenagers stumbled upon four, cold and dirty, toddlers last night on the streets of Spring, Texas. Police reports say that 17-year-old Lizette Lingle, and some friends, were out walking along Cypress Drive around 10p.m. when they found children wandering the street.

Lingle said in a statement to news outlets “We were coming back home from the Valero down the street and we just see them,” she said. “They were in the driveway just running around in the street.”

According to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, the children were left alone for up to two days.

“One of those kids could have got hit, said Jonathan Ubeda, who was among the group that spotted the children. “One of them only had pants on, no shirt, and it’s freezing. One of them was completely naked.”

Deputies said two boys and two girls, with the oldest being close to 4 years of age and the youngest being about 1, were found. Gonzalez said the 1-year-old had fallen from the crib and was on the floor.

“I mean, the kids could have been hit by a car out here or could have remained in the home and something (could have) happened,” Gonzalez said. “It appears that the youngest toddler, about a year old, a year and a half, may have fallen from a crib, and so there could have been an injury there. I mean, we’re talking small children. It’s a shame.”

Lingle said she had entered the home to see if there was an adult inside when she heard the thump.

“I ran in and I see this tiny baby. It didn’t look like a one-year-old. I mean he was so skinny and little.” she said.

Ubeda said the conditions inside of the home were heartbreaking. He described the house in disarray.

“There’s water all over the floor, and the saddest part was when we saw the chair right by the fridge door open, and it’s like they’re hungry. They’ve been starving,” Ubeda added.

The pair called for help and were joined by neighbors who came to change and feed the children until help arrived.

When deputies arrived at the scene, they said the 4-year-old boy told them, “I think mommy is dead.”

“That was something very chilling,” Gonzalez said during a news conference Friday morning.

The children were placed with family members while the police went on a hunt for their parents. A hunt that ended shortly after it began.

Gonzalez said the children’s mother and father were later found at a motel located at 9155 Highway 6. The mother, who has been identified as 27-year-old Angel Huff, has been charged with three counts of child endangerment.

Gonzalez said a felony violation of bond conditions has been filed against the children’s father, 31-year-old Markel Dorsey. Court documents show Dorsey has two assault charges on his record for choking Huff in hotels, and he also has a charge for evading arrest and violating a protective order.

CPS released the following statement:

“Child Protective Services is investigating this case alongside law enforcement to ensure the well-being of the children. We’re grateful the children were found unharmed and that they’re now safe with other family members.”

We're thankful that these children weren't harmed while they were alone. ANYTHING could have happened to them but, we thank God for angels!
