According to police, Blanton left her kids in her apartment on Cornet Subdivision Road. Police said when they went to search for Blanton they found her intoxicated at a neighbors. They said she gave them conflicting stories as to where she had been.

This is such an irresponsible parenting. Kids should not be left alone. You may leave your kids but with an adult or baby sitter watching over them while you're away for a couple of minutes or hours just to be sure they're safe. And please double check the person whom you have entrusted your kids. Make sure that they are responsible and kid-loving. Speaking of child's safety, I have a safety service for my whole family. I protect them with this personal safety device called safekidzone. By just pressing the panic button, you know where they at and what's happening. They can also get help directly to 911 when there's a real emergency.
