INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — A 3-year-old girl is safe in western Missouri after wandering away from home while her older sister shoveled snow.

The Kansas City Star reports the toddler was spotted around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at a grocery store not far from her Independence home.

Independence police spokesman Tom Gentry says the little girl went outside against her mother’s wishes and wandered off without her older sister noticing.
