ATHENS–An anonymous report of children being left alone turned out to be a legitimate concern, as Henderson County Sheriff’s OFfice confirmed last Wednesday.

According to Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt a deputy answering a welfare concern in Chandler found a 2- and 3-year old unattended in a travel trailer without electricity for more than two hours.

When Sergeant Daniel Wright arrived at 10374 Paradise Circle, in Chandler, March 9, he found a 2-year-old little girl and 3-year-old little boy alone in the trailer. An unknown caller reported that small children were in a travel trailer with no electricity.

The officer also noted there was no running water, very little food, and an open flame in the trailer.

A Child Protective Services investigator arrived and the children were placed in CPS custody.

 During Wright’s two hour stay, no guardian arrived to take custody of the children. Upon further investigation it was determined that Paul Yvon is the legal guardian of the children. Wright prepared an arrest warrant affidavit for Abandoning/Endangering a Child on Paul Yvon, 28, father of the children.

Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Judge Randy Daniel determined there was probable cause and issued two arrest warrants.

Yvon was arrested two days later on March 11 and remains in custody with bonds totaling $20,000.
