HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A 20-year-old man has been charged with child endangerment after authorities said he allowed the child he was watching to wander away from a home in northwest Harris County on March 10.

Authorities said Davion Kelley was the child's babysitter.

Deputies said they responded to the neighborhood after multiple reports of a child walking down a street near the 19700 block of Waterflower Drive.

When authorities arrived, they located the child and a witness told them the child had been walking around unaccompanied for about 30 minutes.

Deputies went door-to-door in an attempt to find the child's home.

When authorities found Kelley, they said it appeared he had just woken up.
