A mother wants to know how her four-year-old daughter managed to wander away from school without anyone noticing earlier this week. The child walked out of Crespo Elementary in southeast Houston Thursday. She crossed a busy street and walked five minutes home by herself. No one realized she was missing until a babysitter came to pick her up from school.

A teacher went to the girl's apartment and discovered a note on the door explaining the child was with a neighbor.

HISD says it's reviewing the incident and will take appropriate action to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.
