MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Two Milwaukee County Transit System bus drivers are being recognized for finding two lost children hours apart. 

Cressida Neal spotted a toddler around 4:30 a.m. near Capitol and Humboldt in Milwaukee on July 5. The boy, who was barefoot, scared, and crying, wandered away from his grandmother's house in the middle of the night.

A few hours later at 10:15 a.m. Cecilia Nation-Garder saw a little girl walking along Route 15 in Cudahy. She told Cecilia she was trying to find her mom who lives out of state. 

Back in May, Cecilia ran into traffic to help a boy who had walked away from school.

To the bus drivers who found and helped these kids, good work, but shouldn't this story also be about the fact that far too many kids are not being carefully monitored by their guardians? Wandering off in the middle of the night, walking the streets alone even in the daytime is full of dangers for small children. We hear a lot about human trafficking, these kids are ripe for the picking. I'm curious if any of these adults are charged with endangering for not taking better care of these kids. A simple chain on a door high enough up could prevent a child from getting out of the house while your asleep or doing something else. Is enough being done to make sure people are protecting children?
