Moorhead police on Wednesday morning responded to a report of nearly naked young children, playing in the middle of a busy highway.
The call came in late this morning when someone spotted two children, ages 2 and 3, in the middle of Highway 75 in North Moorhead, according to WDAY in Fargo, ND.
Both children were only wearing diapers and had escaped from the family's home while the parents were asleep.
Police say the kids have been returned to their parents, but the family is working with social services.
Last week, authorities found a 2-year-old girl near a highway in Sandstone, Minn. The girl was at a home day care. The day care owner, Carrie Ann Richardson, 56, has since been criminally charged.
