MILWAUKEE -Milwaukee police say they've located the parents of a young girl found wandering outside alone in dangerously cold temperatures.

Police said 3-year-old Heaven Bates was found Thursday morning on the city's north side.

Investigators said a citizen found the child shortly after midnight Thursday on the city's north side and took her to a police station. Officers searched for the girl's parents and found them about 7 hours later.

Police said the girl apparently woke up in the middle of the night and wanted to play outside. So, she put on her shoes and a jacket, went outside, but then got locked out of her house. She was examined by medical personnel and determined to be OK.
