ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say no criminal charges will be filed against the St. Louis woman whose 5-year-old son was found wandering alone late at night with his dog at a grocery store.

Workers at a Schnucks grocery store in south St. Louis found the boy about 11:15 p.m. Thursday. He said his name was Noah, but he didn't know his last name or where he lived. Workers took him in, gave the boy and the dog food, and called police.

Several hours later, on Friday morning, police located the child's mother. She told authorities she was sleeping and didn't know the boy had wandered off.

Police say there will be strict oversight to ensure that the mother and child get help toward what police call a "healthy living environment."

He said the dog with him was named   King and they were both hungry.  The child and his dog were fed by the store manager. A  security guard called police.

Some reports indicate the boy lives nearby and has wandered off before.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has approved legislation creating a test program designed to help children spend more time with their incarcerated parents.

The program would provide transportation for children and their caretaker who live more than 50 miles away from their parent's prison for visits.

Two Missouri men's prisons and two women's prisons would be selected for the program's trial. Prisoners convicted of offenses where the victim was a child or were found guilty of child abuse would be excluded. The Department of Corrections would have to submit a final report to lawmakers on the program's effectiveness in 2017.

The measure is sponsored by Democratic Rep. Penny Hubbard, of St. Louis. The House voted 140-6 Thursday to send the measure to the Senate.
