Angelo Mitchell Charged: Left 19-month-old Daughter Outside During Irma

    Arrest records reveal new details on what led up to a 19-month-old being left outside during Tropical Storm Irma.

    The little girl’s father, 36-year-old Angelo Mitchell, is charged with child cruelty, accused of abandoning the toddler in the storm.

    According to the arrest report, the girl’s mother called police early Monday to the family’s home near the corner of 11th Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive in Jasper.

    She told investigators Mitchell left the house with the toddler in his car at about 11 o’clock the night before.

    The mother told investigators when Mitchell came back to the house about two hours later, he didn’t have the little girl with him. He told the toddler’s mother he’d left her at the house and never had her, according to the arrest report.

    Officers and deputies searched the area and used a tracking dog to try to find the child, but came up empty.

    Under questioning by investigators, Mitchell insisted his daughter was safe, was never with him, and must be with a family friend.

    The arrest report says Mitchell admitted having several drinks while his daughter was in his care, and officers could smell alcohol on his breath and person. Officers arrested him on child cruelty charges while the little girl was still missing.

    Monday morning, around 11:30, a passerby discovered the child, lying in the yard of a home about 400-500 yards from her house.

    The sheriff says the 19-month-old suffered the whole night through the storm, exposed to the wind and rain, and was purple in color.

    Witnesses tell WCTV the child was also covered in scratches and bug bites.

    The child was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment. The Hamilton County sheriff says the girl went home from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon and is doing well.

    While everyone else was holding their loved ones tight, he was out tossing his baby in the storm of a lifetime.
    I guess he thought he could make her just another casualty of Irma and walk scott free.
    That baby girl was a fighter.

    Fuck this ass hole. Hose him with water and put him in a walk in refrigerator.

    That baby will have a show stopping tale to tell at every party for the rest of her life.
    Hope she is able to tell it for many decades.

    He on the other hand needs to be taken 30 miles out to sea and tossed overboard

    But mom let him leave at 11 at night while drunk? For what? So drunk that two hours later he came back and told her, uh, I never had the baby? WTF! How in the world that poor baby survived a damn hurricane! Can you imagine that fear when your little brain can't even process it?!

    I meant as his permanent residence.
    It wouldn't take long him to off himself.

    Are you effin kidding me?!?!!
    I'm in Volusia county and although other areas didn't get hit as hard, the rain & wind from Irma was bad pretty much state wide. To leave a baby in that?? I cant even wrap my mind around this. She was very lucky or something was looking out for her (I'm not a religious person). My youngest is almost 19 months & i cant even begin to imagine how a parent can be so careless. Just the flying debris could have been fatal.
    This loser needs to be put out during the next hurricane or wherever natural disaster. But no one finds him at the end

    I wouldn't leave an animal- much less a toddler out in a rain storm let alone a cat 3-4 hurricane!

    To the wood chipper with him!
