Children found alone at Augusta residence

An Augusta mother is wanted on a deprivation of minors charge after four children were found alone at her home.

Responding to a tip, a deputy went to the home of Loria Mae Christophe Culver, 28, at 2016 Garr Drive about 3 a.m. Sunday and found the children by themselves, an incident report said.

The children, who told the deputy their mother might be in Atlanta, were 2, 5, 10 and 11 years old.

The Department of Family and Children Services put the children in the care of their grandfather in Washington, Ga., and a warrant was issued for Culver's arrest, the report said.
