Bradenton, Florida — Twin 4-year-old boys who were found wandering in a Bradenton street overnight have not been returned to their parents.
Now Manatee deputies are searching for the children’s father, Dominick Hawkins, to place him under arrest.
Investigators say Hawkins left his sons outside a strange house in the Oneco area.
Initial reports from deputies said they were five and six years old. We now know they’re 4-year-old twins.
A woman spotted them wandering around 10 p.m. Wednesday and called police.
The woman says the children were in hysterics, saying they had been with their father. He had gone into a home somewhere there in the Oneco area, leaving them outside and unattended.
