On December 20, 2014, around 6pm, the parking attendants of the The Grove shopping center, stated that a woman dropped off the young girl at the valet parking area with a car seat but nobody arrived to pick her up.  The attendants notified police and officers took the child into protective custody.  The Department of Children and Family Services was also contacted and are assisting with the care of the 3-year-old little girl.
