Police: Homeless Watch Child While Mom Partied On New Year’s Eve

SAN BERNARDINO (AP) — A Southern California woman has been arrested for allegedly leaving her 10-year-old son with two homeless friends so she could party on New Year’s Eve.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department says 36-year-old Summer Collras was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of child endangerment and later released. She couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Authorities say the San Bernardino woman went out about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and left the boy with two transients she knows. She called authorities after returning home at 2 a.m. and finding the boy and her friends gone.

The boy was found unharmed 14 hours later after a search aided by bloodhounds and a helicopter.

Authorities said he’d stayed overnight with a friend and was walking home.

He was placed with county welfare officials.
