Mother wants answers after day care mix-up

A Florida daycare mistakenly releases young child to wrong family.

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - Imagine showing up to your child's day care center, only to realize your child is gone.

That happened to one Volusia County mother.

The young girl is OK, but now, the pressure is on the day care center to justify the major and dangerous mix-up.

WESH 2's reporter, Robert Lowe spoke to the child's mother, who is demanding answers.

"I was seriously wondering if I was ever going to see my child again," parent Holly Smith said."Basically, they mistook my kid for another child," Smith said.

Last Friday, Smith went to pick up her two children from Pathways Early Learning Center of Port Orange.

She realized someone had taken her daughter when she arrived at the day care center.

It's a parent's worst fear -- and Smith said she has been reliving it for the past week.

Smith said her kids no longer attend the day care center.
