Passerby Find 5-Year-Old Girl Alone In 39 Degree Weather, Surveillance Footage Shows What Happened – Women After 40

Authorities are investigating an Ogden, Utah father after he abandoned his daughter on a college campus before dawn.

The father, identified as Adrian Sanchez by the girl’s mother and Ogden Police, took his 5-year-old daughter to Ogden-Weber Applied Technology College and left her outside a door near a closed daycare in 39-degree weather around 5 a.m., according to security footage from KTVX.

“It broke my heart,” said the girl’s mother, Gena Weaver, as she watched her daughter in the surveillance video. “No 5-year-old deserves to have to fend for himself or wonder if someone will find him. I’m still in shock.”

“She said she got scared,” Weaver told KSTU. “She screamed, ‘Daddy!’ but no one was there.”
The girl’s father left her only a blanket.

“She said she just had her blanket and waited for it to get light,” Weaver said.
According to Weaver, the father told the girl to stay in one place.

“[He] told her to shut up, lay down and go to sleep,” Weaver said.
The surveillance video doesn’t record any sound, but it shows Sanchez talking to his daughter before leaving her alone in the cold.
“It shows her freezing and … she was like, ‘Mom, I hid under the covers until daylight,'” Weaver said, according to KTVX.

At around 7:30 a.m., the girl ran toward a security guard for help, reports the KSTU. She stumbled and fell, scraping her knee and hand.
“It was heartbreaking for him,” Fred Frazier, the college’s security manager, said of the guard who found the girl. “To see a little girl walking alone. Then he became very worried and she was shaking and freezing.”
Why the father left her at college is not known.

“We don’t really know for what purpose he would take the child if there was a drug-induced psychosis,” Lt. Tim Scott of the Ogden Police Department. “At the moment we are waiting to interview the father.”

The girl’s mother had previously obtained a protection order against the father on her daughter’s behalf, but this was refused despite other family members having a protection order against him.

The Youth and Family Welfare Office is involved in the investigation.
The father may face charges of child abandonment or abuse.

According to her mother, the girl was traumatized by the experience.
“She’s staying strong, she’s strong,” Weaver told KTVX. “Just like in the video, she’s very, very strong.” Passerby Find 5-Year-Old Girl Alone In 39 Degree Weather, Surveillance Footage Shows What Happened – Women After 40
