23-year-old Malashia Madave and her boyfriend, Nicholas Safdari, left their three-year-old child alone at home on November 25th. Safdari left their child at home to pick up some personal belongings and admitted to law enforcement that he had to leave their child alone for more than 40 minutes. While Safdari was out, the child left their residence without shoes, wearing only his pajamas. The child was reported missing around 5:30 a.m. and was found nearly an hour later in a parking lot about 1 mile away from Safdari’s home. Safdari later revealed to law enforcement that his mother, Madave, was at the gas station at the time of his child’s disappearance and that this wasn’t the first time they had left their child alone. But when cops interviewed Madave, she said that she was out drinking and came home only to find out that she needed to go back because of her missing wallet. Madave was taken into custody and charged with child neglect.
