CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two parents slept while their 3-year-old son wandered the neighborhood.

Clearwater police say the boy left the family's home Wednesday. The child was gone for at least an hour while 34-year-old Friday Ellen Southworth and 36-year-old Raymond Southworth were sleeping.

Police say the boy was eventually found two blocks away in a neighbor's garage.

Both parents were charged with child neglect.
