Mother who allegedly lost track of children said they were playing 'hide-and-seek'

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime.

An allegedly intoxicated mother who apparently lost track of the whereabouts of her children initially told a Sheriff's sergeant who knocked on her door that she lost track of her youngsters during a game of hide-and-seek.

From WBTA:

Genesee County Sheriff’s Sgt. Greg Walker says 31-year-old Jolene Goodell of Attica Road was drinking at her own home on Monday evening. Her 10 and 7-year-old daughters were home with her, but left the house and walked over to the neighbors' place, telling the folks next door that mommy couldn’t make them dinner right now.

The neighbors called 9-1-1, and lawmen showed up and found Jolene Goodell alone.

"We asked her where her children were," says Sgt. Walker, "and she originally said she didn't know. Then she said she'd last seen them about 30 - 45 minutes ago...and then she said she was playing 'hide-and-go-seek' with them."

Goodell was jailed on $1,500 bail, charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Wow, now this is a story for the record books. Who would do that? I guess some of us will never understand what gets into the minds of people sometimes. I wonder if she will stop drinking now.

LOL Richard I suspect the opposite is true....if she had SOMETHING in her mind she might not have been in this situation. As for the drinking probably not, people have o hit a rock bottom to realize that they have a problem that they need to act on. If the court takes away her driving priveledges, removes the children from the home and fines her so heavily she feels she will nver get it paid....then maybe she might think that drinking isnt worth it. But thats just my humble opinion based on years of exp with alcohol abusers.
