A mother from Mexico faces charges after her kids were found wandering the streets.

The Mexico Department of Public Safety responded to the 1900 block of Osage Monday evening after someone called to report the young children walking in the roadway. The children said they were looking for their mother. Officers finally found the mother shortly after midnight, driving in the 1100 block of Mansfield.

25-year-old Cara D. Widaman was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and two counts of Endangering Welfare of a Child. She was taken to the Audrain County Jail to post bond.
The children were left in the custody of other family members.
