Alisha Esch, age 20, told police she went to a friend’s house in Vero Beach and was drinking, but returned home twice to put both children to sleep before passing out at her friend’s house WPBF.com reported.

Esch’s parents called police after coming home Friday night to find their 3-year-old and 9-month-old grandchildren by themselves without any supervision.

Esch’s father called police when he arrived at the home at 11:30 p.m. and stated one of the children had a soiled diaper and the other was yelling, “asking for their mommy.”

According to an arrest report, Esch came home at 5 a.m. and was intoxicated.


She reportedly told police that she has a drinking problem and needs help before the officers arrested her on a child neglect charge and took her to jail, the paper reported.

Her children, a 9-month-old boy and a 3-year-old girl, are currently in the grandfather’s custody.
