Physical description of caregiver: The caregiver was a large hispanic woman of about 180 lbs. I think she may have recently lost a lot of weight because her upper abs were very droopy (obviously so, I am not being catty). She had a tight pony tail holding hair that was probably ten inches long, wore mascara and had long lashes, olive skin, no jewelry. White plain shirt- the kind of dressy t they might sell at dress barn and tan slacks.
Physical description of involved child/children: This sighting involved one girl. the girl was white, about 40 inches tall, medium weight, blondish, wavy hair. Wearing pink pants with a heart on the pocket and silver high tops.
Address or venue of observed incident: This afternoon at Playground at Belmont Hill County Park in Garfield:
Detailed description of what you witnessed: I witnessed this nanny lose her child, even for two minutes. I found the child and the nanny went off. I didn't say ANYTHING to her, but she started screaming and carrying on saying, "So, what, I made a mistake, what's wrong with her, she's fine, she's fine". In doing this, she scared the little girl who was already out of sorts because she lost her nanny for a bit. I felt so bad for the little girl but I didn't want to make it worse. I first spotted the nanny when I arrived at the park and she was standing and texting. She was walking around back and forth in this twenty foot area. When I saw how she responded to me, I though right away her behavior and nervous pacing energy that had her back to the child was because of drugs.
Description of vehicle, bag, stroller that may aid in identifying involved caregiver: The nanny was carrying a blue crocheted bag horizontally across her body. I think it had brown wood accents. It looked like a vintage piece.
