ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A 2-year-old little girl was found wandering near a road in Bartow County on Monday morning.

Sheriff's deputies were called to an apartment complex off Iron Belt road at about 10:45 a.m.

A resident said they saw the toddler, wearing only a diaper, standing near the complex entrance close to the road. The neighbor picked up the little girl and called 911.

After knocking on doors for an hour trying to find her family, the toddler was turned over to the Department of Family and Children Services.

The child's parents showed up at DFCS a couple of hours later asking about their little girl.

After further investigation, police arrested the girl's father, Javares Sylvester, 24, and charged him with reckless conduct.

Sylvester is currently being held at the Bartow County jail on a $1,000 bond.
