Juvenile Reunited With Mother

A local resident living in the vicinity of Hart Rd and Scoggins, rescued a two-year old wandering down the road at about 8 a.m. this morning and alerted the Paulding Sheriff's office of the find.

Apparently the child made his early morning exit through a pet door of the parents home and in the spirit of discovery, found the community willing to keep him safe and help reunite him with his mother.

That happened when the child's frantic mom called the SO and was told her child was safe. 

Deputies did visit the home and noted that all doors were locked leaving them to surmise the child apparently found an alternative exit from the home through the "doggy door."  The SO press release (below) noted that the investigation found no evidence of negligence or neglect and filed this incident in the do right file.
On 06/20/2018 at approximately 0800hrs, the Paulding County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a citizen who had found a child that appeared to be alone. The child was approximately 18-24 months old and was walking down the roadway near the intersection of Scoggins Rd and Hart Rd.

Deputies and Investigators met with the citizen and brought the child, who appeared to be unharmed, to the Sheriff's Office. Deputies and investigators then began attempting to locate the child's parents immediately.

A short while later, the mother of the child called dispatch to report her two year old missing. Investigators then reunited the child with the mother.

All of the doors to the home were locked and secured, however the juvenile appeared to have found his way outside through a "doggie door" and began walking. The home was in the immediate area of where he was located. As a result of a lack of apparent negligence, charges will not be brought against anyone in this case.
