— Lee County deputies say Annastasia Velez abandoned her 3 young children on an empty porch at a deserted home in Lehigh Acres.

"I went up there and asked them what happened and they said their mommy just dropped them off," said a witness who did not want to be identified.

The witness found the little girls all alone. One of them, a 10-month-old, was still strapped into her car seat.

"They were crying- I had to calm them down. It was sad," said the witness.
