Sacramento Sheriff's deputies returned a pair of toddlers to their mother after they were found wandering in Rancho Cordova.
The children were found by an unidentified woman around 9 a.m. in the 2600 block of Capitales Drive.
They were clad only in diapers and appeared to be 2-year-old twins.
Deputies were directed to El Parque Circle, after a woman who recognized the children and told officials the parents lived there.
The children were reunited with their mother, but Sheriff's officials have asked Child Protective Services to evaluate the home situation.
