JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro Police say the missing woman who left her kids at daycare and home alone, has turned herself into police.

According to Jonesboro Police, 28-year-old Nicole Leah Davidson turned herself into police around 2:30 Friday afternoon. She has been charged with 2 misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a minor. Her two kids remain in state custody.

Police say hasn't given detectives specifics as to her whereabouts over the past 4 days, only saying she was near Wynne.

Police say she dropped her 4-year-old girl off at a day care center on the morning on the 12th, but no one picked her up. After the center couldn't find Davidson, the center called the Department of Human Services.

At 5 a.m. Tuesday, police were called to Davidson's home, where her 11-year-old daughter told officers that her mother hadn't been home since she got home from school the day before. She was picked up by a DHS caseworker.
