A 22-year-old Laurel County mother is behind bars after her 2-year-old son was found wandering her neighborhood completely naked with just a pair of shoes on. Amanda Nelson told authorities she had no idea the child was missing.

A resident in the same neighborhood who did not want to be identified, found the child and immediately brought him into his own home where he put some clothes on him and called police. Police say had that person not found the child when he did, they fear he could have died from exposure as temperatures were below freezing.

When authorities knocked on Nelson's door, they say she gave them a false name and also said that children "wander off," and that they should not be concerned. Social services investigated and placed the child with other family members.

Nelson is facing a felony charge of endangering the welfare of a minor and a misdemeanor charge of giving a false name to police. She is expected to be arraigned on Monday.

Relatives of Nelson declined an on-camera interview but say that she is a good mom and feel this has been blown out of proportion.

how can someone be a good mom if they let their child roam around outside like that! if she was such a good mother she would know where her child is, especially at that age... rediculous!

I guess they will throw the book at her. Of course if she had left the child in a hot vehicle and let it die from exposure she may have gotton off.

that's what i'm thinkin. i think it's sad that the system is harder on those who struggle to make it than the rich people. i think it's also wrong that it depends on who you know also.

YOU know why.it is like the one woman was saying,who was praising GOD she got away with it[she's a nurse for heaven sake shes too good to be in a place like that. think what that would do to a woman with such a high standing].our bigoted grandjury felt the same way.

she had old warrants against her, she lied about her name and made lite of the situation with "children wander off all the time". The nurse didn't behave that way or did she? I'm just asking don't want to offend anyone.

Guys this woman could be a single mom working and going to school or just working. Maybe she fell asleep and the kid got out and she freaked out and gave a false name...

Why do people judge others so quickly? Someone assumed she is on welfare..... How sad.
