NORTH HARMONY – A Village of Ashville woman was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after New York State Police said her one-year-old was found wandering in the road Monday.

Troopers said Natalie Wescott, 24, left home to run errands before her child exited the house.











The toddler was located by a concerned citizen who, after trying to find their parents, called the police.

Upon investigation, troopers said the Wescott’s residence was in a “deplorable state.”







Police then contacted Child Protective Services. Wescott was taken into custody and taken to the New York State Police Barracks for processing.

Troopers said she was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in the Town of North Harmony Court at a later date.
