No charges were filed after a 2-year-old girl was found alone in a busy Middletown intersection Tuesday morning, according to Middletown police.

Shea Redmon, of Hamilton, found the girl near the intersection of Baltimore Street and Lafayette Avenue on her way to work in Middletown. Redmon pulled her car over, picked up the girl and held her until police arrived.

Casi Roark, who lives in the 2100 block of Baltimore, said she watches the girl occasionally and the child must have walked out of the house while Roark was sleeping, she told police.

The girl’s parents live in Cincinnati and they responded to Middletown.

Police checked with children services in Butler, Warren and Hamilton counties, and neither the girl’s parents nor Roark had open cases, according to the police report.

Roark was warned against any further calls and that she has to “be aware” of the children under her care at all times.
