When police found the boy’s home, they went inside and discovered it was covered in filth. His mother, who was inside, appeared to be under the influence.

Tina Anderson was arrested and is facing three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, one count for each of her children, and one drug charge.

When police interviewed Anderson's older children, they said they didn't want to live with their mother anymore because the floors were covered in waste and she didn't feed them.
