NORTH LIBERTY (KWWL) -

A North liberty woman is facing a child endangerment charge after police say she didn't realize her young children were blocks away from her.

North Liberty officers were called to 40 Sugar Creek Lane just before 9:00 a.m. Sunday for a report of children found without an adult.

When police arrived, they found Mary Theresa Masbruch, 24, with another adult and they say neither adult was aware that the two and four-year old kids were missing.

Police say someone else found the kids three blocks away.

Masbruch is charged with child endangerment.

Police say DHS was contacted due to the living conditions inside the home.
