A Department of Public Utilities worker contacted the sheriff’s office after spotting two juvenile girls walking alone at 2 p.m. Wednesday, according to an incident report.

The incident report doesn’t provide the ages of the girls.

The worker told deputies he was working on a power line on Drexel Street when he saw the two girls.

He spoke with the girls and learned that they lived on the same street.

A deputy knocked on the door of the girls’ residence and discovered that the door wasn’t locked, the report said.

When the deputy went inside, he discovered the girls’ father was asleep in his bedroom.

The father wasn’t aware that his daughters had exited the residence.

He told law enforcement that the girls’ mother likely left for work and didn’t wake him up before she left, the report said.

He told a deputy that he believed the door was locked when the girls’ mother left for work.
