CATOOSA, Okla. - Catoosa police are looking for the mother of a 4-year-old boy found wandering in a dark parking lot at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The boy was found in the second-floor parking garage around midnight Friday and when police arrived they say he told them his parents got mad at him and kicked him out of the van in which they were living.
The boy's father, identified as Harley Walter Hayes, was arrested about 30 minutes later when he drove up to the hotel valet, looking for his son.
Hayes was taken in for child neglect.
The boy's mother was not publicly identified but police say she has no parental rights and is serving a 10-year deferred sentence for child neglect.
The boy is in DHS custody.
