Authorities have accused a Roswell woman of abandoning her son at a cemetery last week.
They say Loraine Olivas remains at the Eddy County Detention Center for child abuse, abandonment, and interference with a child abuse investigation.
KOB-TV reports an Amber Alert went out for the boy as police searched for Olivas on Saturday.
A short time later, a woman called police after finding him wandering and crying alone at Lake Arthur Cemetery.
Carlsbad Police found Olivas five miles out of town after she ran out of gas.
A criminal complaint shows her saying she left him at his father’s house, but the man says that did not happen.
