Missing child found safe after 3-hour search


TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) — Every law enforcement agency in Tippecanoe County was called to search for a missing toddler Sunday night.

Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s deputies said the 3-year-old boy was reported missing around 6 p.m. That was after deputies said the child wandered away from his home in the southwestern part of the county.

Nearly three hours later, he was found about 1 ½ miles from the home.

Deputies said other than being a little shaken up, the child was not injured and was doing well.

Several area fire departments and citizens assisted with the search.

Deputies said there is no indication of foul play or wrong doing by the parents.
