Mother Facing Charge in Disappearance of 2-year-old Son

The mother of a two-year-old boy who was found wandering along a road in the Greene Sullivan state Forest nearly two-miles from home is facing a felony charge of Neglect of a Dependent.

The charge was filed Friday against Frances Rooney of Linton by Greene County Prosecutor Jerrod Holtsclaw.

Smithville Telephone Engineer Tim Lewellyn spotted the naked boy while driving through the forest and contacted authorities.
The child reportedly was covered in bug bites, scratches, and bruises.

Rooney is scheduled to appear in court September 4th.
