Bond money and the sale of a 6.2-acre parcel Tot wanders off at night in 2-degree cold The Associated Press CONCORD, N.H.

A old girl woke up early Sunday at her grandparents' house, walked out a faulty back door and wandered a quarter mile in 2-degree cold until a motorist found her, police said. Stephanie Gagne, who was wearing pink pajamas with built-in feet, was reunited with her family about five hours later, after her sister woke up, found Stephanie missing and alerted their grandmother. "I know everything ended up fine, but you don't know how bad I said the grandmother, Anita Gagne. "I said to her, 'Why did you do that, Honey? Why did you do that to said Gagne, 57, using a French word for grandmother. "She said, I was looking for you, Gagne said.

The girl's mother, Loretta Gagne, 40, said her daughter seemed unfazed by her excursion. A motorist found the girl, clutching a blanket, at least a quarter-mile from her grandparents' house and flagged down a police cruiser about 3:15 a.m., said Concord Police Sgt. James Cross. Stephanie and her sister, Emily, 6, spent the night with their grandparents while their parents went to a party. It was only the second night Stephanie had been away from home.

The toddler kept waking up, her grandmother said, so sometime after 2 a.m., she turned off the kitchen light. When Stephanie awoke again in the darkness, she apparently wandered out the back door, which had not been working properly. After doctors determined that Stephanie was fine, police knocked on doors near where she was found but could not find her family. They then took her to headquarters. When the family members realized Stephanie was missing, they called police, who told them she was safe.
