3-year-old boy found sitting alone in a store aisle at night

FORT PIERCE, Florida - The crying of a 3-year-old boy sitting alone in a store aisle at night finally attracted a clerk's attention.

The toddler was so upset, he could only ask "where was his mommy," according to a police report. He couldn't remember his mother's last name and a call over the store's public address system drew no response. A search outside the Deal's Dollar Tree, in the 400 block of Georgia Avenue, also was unsuccessful.

Finally an hour later, at 9:44 p.m., a gold-colored minivan drove up with the mother, Philleana Peak, 30 (Picture) and grandmother as police were at the store. The mother "seemed confused when approached about the whereabouts of her child," according to the police report. "She said she thought he was in the vehicle at the time she left the store.

"But couldn't find him when they got home," the report states.

Yet no one called 911, police said, and she allegedly couldn't explain hourlong absence.  More – Discount cigarettes, tax free, free shipping worldwide
