Texas police looking for mother who left children at home alone for two months

Police are looking for a Texas mother who abandoned her 12-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son for two months last year.

The Rome Forest Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for the mother of Raven Yates, who is charged with two counts of abandoning or endangering a child without intending to return, the department said.

Police said they received a phone call on November 14 from a worried father of a 12-year-old who said the two children had been home alone since September 28.

During the weeks spent alone, the siblings allegedly had limited access to food or medicine.

The father, who lived and worked in California, immediately flew to Texas, police said. He told law enforcement that Yates was spotted in Mobile, Alabama, without children by his former mother-in-law, police told ABC News.

He realized that the children were left alone at home after his daughter asked him to regularly send them food.

The father called the police and met them at the house where the two children lived.

There was no food on the shelves or in the refrigerator, but the children looked healthy.

“I think the 12-year-old boy was very resourceful. But she shouldn’t have done that,” Carlisle said.

According to police, the children were not registered at the school.

The two children are safe with their grandmother in Alabama, police said. Investigators found that weeks before Yates left her children, she reported that a third, 14-year-old, had run away from home.

The father of a 12-year-old girl, working in California, paid the rent of a house where the children were abandoned by their mother.

The child was also able to get to his grandmother’s house.

Yates is still in the Mobile area, police said. The Mobile Police Department is assisting the Roman Forest Police in the investigation.

They have not been able to find Yeats since a warrant for his arrest was first issued on December 6.
