(KMOV) Witnesses say they were baffled to find two children, ages three and four, wandering along 2nd Street near D Street in Belleville, Illinois Friday afternoon.
At the time, the youngest was in the middle of the street chasing a ball.
One man who helped take the kids to a nearby school says the little girl was only wearing a T-shirt and a pamper. He says he was shocked that they were outside by themselves in the cold weather.
Belleville Police are not pressing charges in the case, but the Illinois Division of Children and Family Services has been called in to investigate.
