Clearfield, PA – A Clearfield woman is facing charges for not caring for her young daughter.

The investigation started when police were called out to Lawrence Park Village in late August because a 7-year-old girl was wandering around and not in school.

The girl reportedly approached a woman and complained that she was hungry. The woman then fed the young girl a bowl of cereal and called police.

Officers recognized the girl from previous incidents with the family.

When CYS came to take the girl to a safe location, they found that the house was extremely dirty and they had trouble even finding any clean clothes for the girl to wear.

The mother, 26-year-old Brittany Sipe of Clearfield, faces charges of endangering the welfare of children. She was lodged in the Clearfield County Jail on $25,000 bail.
