48 seconds v 48 hours

The Herald reports:

Police were last night interviewing the mother of a 2-year-old girl found outside a McDonald’s restaurant on Saturday.

The toddler was spotted outside McDonald’s in Otara about midday and had been in the care of police and Children, Youth and Family Services since then. No one had reported the girl missing.

Yesterday afternoon, police urged anyone with information about the girl to come forward.

By 9.30pm last night, the dmother and a second relative came forward to claim the child.

Most of my friends who are parents panic if they lose track of their 2 year old for even 48 seconds. Almost impossible to conceive having your kid missing for 48 hours and you haven’t even alerted the Police.
