Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) – A Twin Falls daycare is at the center of a controversy. Idaho’s First News reports Miss Diedre’s Daycare is under fire after a toddler was found walking down a Twin Falls Street with a stranger Wednesday unsupervised.
Diedre Hamann, the daycare owner says this is the first time it’s happened. She says that she was behind the house with a plumber when the child got loose. Lt. Craig Stotts with the Twin Falls Police Department said they got a call from a concerned citizen who found the child in the road.
