INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Many are wondering how a 10-year-old could survive outside, in the cold for two days.
Police still don’t know how 10-year-old Tatyana Staten survived the bitter cold after running away from her home in the 4300 block of Elizabeth Street Friday.
But 24-Hour-News 8 has learned about a series of disturbing events leading up to the 10-year-old's disappearance.
In November, IMPD and child protective services responded to her home for an incident involving a 10-year-old.
The day before she went missing, Staten was suspended from school for stealing food from the teacher's lounge.
Thursday, the young girl spent the afternoon with a forensic interviewer who works with children who are victims of crime.
24-Hour-News 8 contacted the child’s family. They declined to comment for the story.
