A mother was found dead in her home after a man came across her four-year-old daughter playing alone in the snow.

The child – named locally as Emily – was wearing just her ‘My Little Pony’ pyjamas in the playground, despite temperatures being barely above freezing on Wednesday evening.

Marcus King spotted the child and took her to a nearby community centre for shelter.

He spent three hours with police trying to find out where her mum was, according to Fox News.

But Emily led Marcus to her home nearby and officers found the door wide open in Ogden, Utah.

‘The way the little girl was explaining it was: Her mom wasn’t paying attention, and her mom was on the floor sleeping,’ Marcus said.

The 41-year-old mother was found dead inside the home.

Police believe she died 24 hours previous as a result of a pre-existing medical condition.

Emily is now being taken care of by social services.

It is unclear when she left her home and made her way to the playground.

Marcus said: ‘This is not a good part of Ogden – there’s a lot of weirdos around here, and I’m really, really fortunate and happy that I got to her, and nobody else did.’
