Brandie Allison Thompson, 33, has been charged with child neglect after she allegedly allowed her 14-year-old daughter to meet up with a 19-year-old man by herself.
On July 11, police in Wellford, South Carolina, received a call about the missing teen on July 11, Fox Carolina reported. According to an incident report, Thompson told officers she allowed her daughter to meet with the man but that she hadn’t returned within 20 minutes.
