A Florida couple was arrested after they allegedly left their daughter at a park Friday for more than 12 hours. 

Deputies say the girl, about 2 years of age, was found walking inside Haverhill Park in Palm Beach County alone.

The girl’s parents, Jolanda Larose Alexandre and Makenson Alexandre, stated that they did not realize they left their child at the park. 

The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of the child and removed seven other children from the Alexandre’s home.

Both parents are charged with one count of Neglect of Child.
