Longview mother arrested after two-year-old child found naked outside motel room

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A 28-year-old mother was arrested Sunday morning, charged with abandoning her kids.

According to Longview police, someone called authorities to report that a young child was walking naked outside a room at Motel 6 in the 400 block of North Spur 63. Police responded to the scene and found the two-year-old and a 12-year-old had been left alone in the room some time Saturday, police said. The 12-year-old child told police that their mother, Amanda Cheri Goodwin, of Longview, had gone shopping Saturday and left them alone - stopping once at about 10 p.m. Saturday to bring food, reports showed.

The children were placed in the custody of a grandparent who came to the scene, but Goodwin was later arrested when she returned to the motel at about 6:30 Sunday morning, according to police.

Goodwin is in the Gregg County Jail today. Her bond has not been set, but she is also being held on a $372 traffic warrant from the City of Longview, jail records show.
