" Are you my Mommy?"
(Texas) - Investigators are looking into how a young boy managed to slip out of a Denton, Texas day care center unnoticed, then cross two busy roads and end up a half-mile away at a Hooters restaurant. The five-year-old boy walked out of the Imagination Station child care center, he then crossed busy Dallas Drive to go to a RaceTrac gas station to purchase a soft drink and snacks. After leaving the station, he ended up in the Hooters parking lot about a half-mile away. The restaurant's general manager Brian Mason said, "I was pretty impressed that he made it that way without getting hurt. He let us know that he looked both ways before crossing the road, stopped in the middle and then crossed again." With no chaperone for the boy in sight, Mason called police. "We kept him in the back coloring and kept him pretty occupied until the police showed up," he said. The five-year-old has not been back to the day care since the incident.
