Child gets out of day care center; found wandering alone in Monroe Township

A young girl is now safe after she was found wandering along a busy street in Middlesex County.



According to the prosecutor's office, the 2-year-old walked out of the Remsterville Learning Center on Prospect Plains Road Wednesday morning.



A good Samaritan saw the girl walking on the shoulder of Applegarth Road and took her in, according to authorities. The police were called and the child was reunited with her parents.



A spokesperson for the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office says that the day care did not notify police that the child was missing.



An investigation is now underway. No charges have been filed.
