Posted by: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

Lincoln Police cited and released 20-year-old Bridgette Hull for Child Neglect December 28.

Police said she was the primary caretaker of 22-month-old Skhylar Timm.

The toddler couldn’t be found after his mother dropped him off at Hull’s home in North Bottoms near 10th and New Hampshire December 27.

Officers later found the child muddy, cold and not properly dressed for the weather.

Police said Hull waited about three hours before notifying them of the toddler’s disappearance fearing she may get in trouble.
