GLUCKSTADT, Mississippi — A 2-year-old girl has been found dead inside her mother’s car at a Mississippi daycare.

According to multiple media reports, Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker says the mother thought she had taken her child to Little Footprints Learning Center in Gluckstadt, about 18 miles north of Jackson, before going to work Wednesday. When she returned to pick her up, daycare workers told her she hadn’t dropped her off.
