A 3-year-old girl, possibly confused by a dream, walked a mile to a grocery store at night through freshly fallen snow, thinking her mother was inside buying pizza. An employee found Hope Trott crying outside at 4 a.m. Wednesday and called police. Officers followed the child’s footprints to her Baileyville home, found the front door open, and thinking a home invasion was in progress, entered with guns drawn, police told the Bangor Daily News. They found Hope’s parents, Laura and Jesse Trott, and her older siblings fast asleep. Laura Trott said it was a frightening experience and she was shocked to find out why police were there. She said she was not sure what caused her daughter to leave the house. (AP)
