ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A woman was found dead and her toddler uninjured in an apartment Monday. The woman's name has not been released.
Anchorage police said the woman was found lying on the floor of the apartment.
The woman was last seen Friday night. The toddler, about 18 months old, was turned over to the state Division of Family and Youth Services. Police said they do know how long the toddler was left unattended.
Police said there were no signs of foul play and that they are waiting for autopsy results to determine an exact cause of death.
A daycare provider phoned the woman's employer when the mother did not drop off the child Monday. A co-worker looked through an apartment window, saw the mother and phoned police.
