On 12-29-15 at approximately 9 a.m., Hernando County deputies were dispatched to the area of U.S. 19 in front of the Motel 6 regarding a Suspicious Incident.
Dispatchers received a call from a concerned motorist who had observed five very small children attempting to cross the highway to get to Weeki Wachee Springs. The motorist was able to stop the children before they entered into the lanes of traffic.
The children were too young to advise their names and/or who their parents were. All of the children were wearing only diapers, which were heavily soiled.
