Family Takes A Road Trip, Forgets 3-Year-Old Daughter At Rest Stop

A family in southern France mistakenly left their 3-year-old daughter at a highway rest stop. The young girl was left behind for more than two hours, but she was able to tell police officers what her car looked like.

The French media said that the little girl told officers that "Daddy's car drove away."

After driving down the road for about 90 miles, the family heard a message on the radio in which the police asked them to pick up their daughter.

The parents reportedly asked their other children -- a boy and a girl -- if everything was okay, and the kids didn't notice that their little sister was missing.

Local police are looking into the situation to asses whether or not further legal action should be taken.
