Wilmette, Illinois (Chicago suburb)
Date of incident: Jan 29 2010
Location: Wilmette, Illinois (Chicago suburb)
Nanny: Young, caucasian, straight blonde hair, silver nose stud, driving a small-ish sedan (Mazda?) tan or grey
Children: 2 Caucasian girls, older one had a pink fleece North Face hat and the younger one had a green (?) North Face parka
What happened: This occurred in the parking lot of my children's school. I was getting my kids out of the car while nanny was getting older girl out of her car. Then she walked away into the school with the older girl, leaving the younger girl alone in the car with the car running. By the time my kids & I were entering the school she was on her way out again, but she was probably gone for at least 5 minutes with this little girl unattended in a running car at the farthest end of the parking lot away from the school (and closest to a major road). I know it's freezing out today and it's a pain to get 2 kids in and out of the car, but still...if this was my child I'd want to know.
