2 young girls found along Missouri dirt road; man charged

LONEDELL, Mo. (AP) – An eastern Missouri man is facing child-endangerment charges after two young girls were found wandering alone on a dirt road.

Charges were filed Monday against 22-year-old Dustin Burch of Lonedell, a small town in Franklin County. He was jailed on $15,000 bond and did not have a listed attorney.

Franklin County Sheriff Gary Toelke told the Washington Missourian (http://bit.ly/1knc6li ) that Burch was smoking marijuana and fell asleep while watching the girls. The sheriff’s office says one child was believed to be 2 years old or younger, and the other no older than 4.

Toelke’s office was called about 6:15 p.m. Monday after someone saw the girls walking along a dirt road. Deputies found the girls were unharmed, but wearing soiled diapers. Neither was able to say where they lived.
