Tawatha Mitchell

Tawatha Jeree Mitchell, 30, of Muskogee has been charged in Muskogee County District Court with child neglect after police found her five-year-old son wandering around a basketball court around 9 p.m. on July 26.

The boy told police he couldn’t find his mother. Police went to the house he showed them, and Mitchell was nowhere to be found. Neighbors also told police the boy often shows up at their apartment two to three times a week, saying he doesn’t know where his mother is and he’s hungry and thirsty.

Police spoke to someone identifying herself as Mitchell, who said she would come pick the boy up from the police station, but she never showed, so DHS took custody of the boy.
