WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A woman has been arrested after her young child was found wandering in southeast Wichita.

Lt. Doug Nolte said Monday that a neighbor called 911 on Sunday night to report that a 4-year-old boy was walking into the street and crying for his mother. The Wichita Eagle (http://is.gd/iV9Dxi) reports that officers found the child's mother passed out on couch in an apartment with an open front door.

Nolte says the woman had drunk a large amount of alcohol.

Officers took the woman into custody on an outstanding warrant and for suspicion of child endangerment.

The boy was placed in the care of other relatives.
