HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. —
A 10-year-old boy was found wandering around naked and drunk in a Hernando County neighborhood, just north of Tampa, deputies said.
A neighbor said she discovered the boy wandering naked on Friday.
Investigators said the boy's caregiver, Nedra Byrd, was drunk, too, and passed out in her home.
When deputies arrived, they said they found a half-empty bottle of brandy sitting on the counter.
The boy was taken to the hospital.
"How do you not know your child is missing and drunk, drunk and missing, wandering down a dark road in the cold. I just don't understand," said neighbor Amanda Roesch.
Byrd was arrested and charged with child neglect.
