POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Onalaska Police Department have arrested a woman after her child was found walking along a road on Monday.

Alexandria Marie Holloway, 22, of Nassau Bay, is charged with state-jail felony abandoning a child.

According to the affidavit, an officer was sent to FM 356 after someone called and said a child was walking along the road and heading toward US Highway 190.

The officer reported seeing the child with two women. The women said he was near the road, and they got him out of the way. The officer reported the child was dirty, and his diaper was sagging down to his knees.

The officer said Holloway walked up to the area with another child on her hip and said she did not know he was gone. The deputy contacted Child Protective Services, and they said they had an open case on her.

The deputy then placed Holloway under arrest.
