    A 19 Action News investigation has found, a mother has been investigated for bad parenting more than a half-dozen times, and she's now under investigation again after social workers say five brothers were found home alone.
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Police have issued an arrest warrant for the mother of five children who were found alone in a home on Cleveland's east side. 

Cleveland Police have been looking for Linda Brown, who is the mother of the children.

19 Action News has learned that all five kids have different fathers, and we're investigating to find out where the fathers are.

Police found the children home alone at East 68th St. and Hough Ave., the oldest is only 10-years-old.

Officers found no food in the home and Cuyahoga County social workers have put the boys in foster care.

Court records show two of the fathers are locked up, one is sitting in prison for a concealed weapon, and the other for drugs.

Other records describe three of the fathers as unknown, "his ability to care for his child is unknown."

Brown has faced charges before for theft, assault and child endangering. She's been investigated by social workers for her parenting more than a half dozen times since 2008.

Reporter Ed Galled has discovered that more than a decade ago, she had two kids taken away from her for good, seems no father stepped up then either.
