WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) -

A Waterloo couple have been charged with child endangerment after a 2-year-old boy was spotted wandering outside wearing only a diaper.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports that it was 32 degrees on Sunday afternoon when the boy was reported outside, crying in the driveway of his house.

He'd gone inside by the time officers arrived. They found no adults there.

The resident, Randeigh Bohlen, 20, and her boyfriend, Ryan Evans, 29, returned after a total of 20 to 30 minutes. They told officers they'd gone to a store. Bohlen also says her 8-month-old child was sleeping upstairs on a bed.

Public phone listings for Bohlen and Evans couldn't be found. Online court records don't list the names of their attorneys.
