Parents of wandering 2-year-old in jail

The sheriff’s office says a couple went to jail after their two-year-old child wandered in Swearengin on Saturday.

The toddler showed up at a home on Swearengin Road that afternoon, and its residents called 911.

Deputies three hours later contacted the child’s parents at their home.

They charged John and Sherry Owens with child endangerment.

DHR has the child in temporary custody.

How this all happened remains a mystery.
