TOWN OF SAUGERTIES - Saugerties Police responded on Sunday to 2224 Route 32 in Glasco for a welfare check on five children reportedly left alone in the residence with no adult supervision.

A family member told investigating officers that the mother of the children had left her residence about 1 Saturday morning and has not been seen or heard from since.

The children ages 14, 9, 6, 3 and 1, were turned over to Child Protective Services.

The mother, Rebecca Hernandez, 31, finally returned to the residence shortly after 6 Sunday evening to awaiting officers, who took her into custody.  She was charged with five misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and released on an appearance ticket.

Saugerties Police were assisted by members from the Kingston Police Department and Ulster County Child Protective Services.
