Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies were recently called for a report of a toddler walking down the roadway in West Jackson.

The incident was reported Nov. 14 on Pendergrass Rd. in Hoschton.

Officers didn't find a toddler on the roadway, but made contact with the child's mother who said her 2-year-old daughter had gotten out of the house. The woman told officers she was showering while her daughter was napping, but when she got out of the shower, she noticed the child had gotten out through the front door.

She told officers she's working to get a better locking system on the house.

Officers advised her to keep a better eye on the child.
