According to police, Adormi’s mother put the girls to bed around 11 p.m. Thursday, and then went to bed herself. She woke up around midnight and went to check on her daughter and grand-niece, but the girls were gone.

The mother believes the girls left on their own.

“The caregiver also discovered that a stop stick which had been put in place to secure the door, had been removed and placed to the side,” police said in a news release.
