Misty Dawn Ingersoll, also known as Misty Blankenship, 27 of Sarah Ann, was arrested in Logan County by West Virginia State Police Troopers B.K. Wellman and B.A. Lowe on two counts of Child Neglect. She was reportedly released on bond.
According to police reports on May 3, the officers responded to a call about two small kids walking in the road who were almost struck by passing vehicles. One child was reportedly six years of age while the other was four. The incident allegedly occurred near the Sarah Ann Post Office.
“Upon arrival in the area, these officers located the children,” the report states. “The children stated to these officers that they could not wake their mother so they were walking to school at Omar. These officers had the children take them to their residence located approximately one mile away. These officers entered the residence through an open front door and located the accused sleeping in a bedroom. Upon waking, the accused stated that she did not know where her children were. These officers also observed the residence to be extremely dirty and unfit for living. “
The officers contacted Child Protective Services who responded to the call and took the children, placing them in the custody of their grandmother.
