Mom arrested
GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- The mother of a toddler who disappeared near Gordonville, Texas, on Thursday is now in custody. Grayson County Sheriff's officials say Elizabeth Tidwell of Whitesboro noticed her four-year-old boy was not in the backyard around 2 p.m., but it wasn't until an hour later that he was reported missing by his grandparents.

Deputies say a neighbor who lives two miles away found the boy on her property. Child Protective Services was called to investigate, and Tidwell was arrested for endangering a child and possession of marijuana.

Her bond was set at $21,500.

    Anonymous - I wonder too, they both happened in Gordanville, maybe that is why. Tammy Chill was raised in Kingston, OK and within the past year was still living in the Sherwood Shores area with Preston Douglas.

    I wish all the people who put children in danger because they rather do drugs,would give them up safely to people who would love and and take care of them.

    Why are these stories posted on the same page? It seems to me that these folks from OK are in no way related to the gal from TX.
