Indiana Mother Charged With Child Neglect

An Indiana mother has been charged with neglect after her toddler was found playing on a busy highway.

30-year-old Nancy Dyer pleaded "not guilty" Thursday at her initial court hearing.

Last week, motorists found her 3-year-old son playing along Interstate 465, near Indianapolis.

He was wearing only a diaper and t-shirt.

Police say the boy wandered away from his apartment while his mother was sleeping.

Dyer is currently being held on bond.

Her two children are in protective custody.
