BAILEYVILLE, Maine (AP) -- A 3-year-old Maine girl, possibly confused by a dream, walked a mile to a grocery store in the middle of the night, thinking her mother was inside buying pizza.

Police say Hope Trott woke up in the middle of the night last week, put on shoes, threw a jacket on over her nightdress and walked to the store through freshly fallen snow. Temperatures were around 29 degrees.

An employee found the girl crying outside the store at 4 a.m. and called police.

Police tell the Bangor Daily News (http://bit.ly/yRcafq) officers followed her footprints to her Baileyville home, found the front door open, and thinking a home invasion was in progress, entered with guns drawn. They found Hope's parents and siblings asleep.

Her parents have since installed a chain and deadbolt.
