Toddler found wandering, mom arrested

Nyesha Hall-Gonzalez, 28, is being held on $50,000 bond.

The mother of a missing 3-year-old boy is facing charges of attempted first degree murder and child abuse after her son was found in the county with cuts and scrapes.

Around 10 a.m. Saturday, 28-year-old Nyesha Hall-Gonzalez was found wandering on the railroad tracks along I-25 near mile marker 119.

According to El Paso County Sheriff’s deputies, hours earlier she was spotted by Colorado State Patrol Troopers with her 3-year old-son.  When asked for the child’s whereabouts Hall-Gonzalez became uncooperative.

Search and Rescue along with K-9 units were called out and found the boy around 1 p.m. with minor cuts and scrapes.

It appears he fell into a drainage ditch.  He was later taken to a hospital and reunited with his father.

Hall-Gonzalez was arrested based on statements during the investigation.  But sheriff deputies won’t say specifically what led to the arrest.

Hall-Gonzalez is currently at the El Paso County Jail on $50,000 bond.
