    A Colorado woman accused of leaving her son alone in a car overnight during a snowstorm appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol around the time she apparently abandoned the boy.

    Court documents say that surveillance video captured 26-year-old Nicole Carmon walking into a gas station Friday night in suburban Denver looking disheveled and appearing distressed. Investigators say she seemed to say something about "Target" and pointed to a nearby Target store before walking off.

    The boy was found Saturday morning in a car covered in snow parked at the Target store about 14 hours later. He had hypothermia and frostbite.

    The Denver Post reports that Carmon told police that she had six shots of vodka Friday.

    The public defender's office declined to comment on the allegations.
