The manager at Fox Den apartments found a 6-year-old wandering alone outside, according to Richmond County sheriff's Sgt. James Kelly.
The manager led the child to his home on Fox Trace but could not find an adult.
Later, the child's 8-year-old sibling was also discovered alone outside. Authorities arrived and found no food in the children's home.
Tasha Simpson was later arrested and charged with two counts of child deprivation.
