She was found alone at a local convenience store, and now Lubbock police are trying to figure out why.
Authorities say around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, a five-year-old girl walked into the EZ Mart in the 7400 block of Quaker.
Officers searched for the girl's parents for several hours and eventually found them at their residence nearby.
The child was not harmed or injured, and no criminal charges are pending at this time.
