LADSON -- State authorities want to know how a toddler wandered from a College Park Road day-care center this week.

The girl walked off the property at Noah's Ark Daycare Center and Kindergarten at 1011 College Park while she was under the center's care, Department of Social Services spokeswoman Marilyn Matheus said Thursday.

The girl, who Matheus said is 2 years old, was found uninjured by someone who then contacted DSS. A person who alerted the newspaper about the incident said the child is 3.

Matheus said agents from the department's Childcare Licensing Regulations and Out of Home Abuse and Neglect units are investigating the incident.

There is no Berkeley County Sheriff's Office incident report because deputies were not called out to the scene, spokesman Dan Moon said.

Noah's Ark's director said Thursday that she could not comment, and attempts to reach the child's mother were unsuccessful.
