A Harris County woman is facing a charge for allegedly leaving three children alone in her northeast Harris County home.

Danielle Noelie Flores, 32, is charged with abandoning a child. Harris County deputies were called to her home in the 7900 block of Cyrl on Sunday.

A witness told investigators that she was contacted by Flores' sister, who said the children -- ages 13, 11 and 9 -- came to her home. According to court documents, the children told the aunt that Flores had been gone for a long period of time and they were hungry.

One of the children said that Flores left the house at around 1am, exclaiming that the child messed up her high.

An officer entered Flores' home and reportedly noticed a strong odor of rotten garbage and no edible food.

Bail in this case has been set at $15,000.
