OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A 21-year-old Omaha mom is facing a child neglect charge after leaving her 2-year-old daughter in the car while she shopped on a cold day.

The mom was ticketed at Oakview Mall earlier this month on a 21-degree day.
    

Police say a woman noticed the toddler in the vehicle on Jan. 3 after the child honked the horn and called police.
    

By the time a locksmith arrived, the girl's mother was returning to the car. Police say she had left her daughter alone for at least 30 minutes. The child had 11 coins in her mouth when the car was unlocked.

The mother told police that the girl was asleep when she arrived, so she decided to go inside alone and return an item.
