Parents were sleeping as their 3 year old wandered several blocks away from her Belfair home before a concerned citizen found the toddler asking for her mommy. Detective William Adam tells us on Monday, May 04, 2015 at approximately 7:54 AM, a woman living in the 400 block of NE Schooner Loop, Belfair, WA found a 3 year old little girl wearing pajamas, walking down the street and asking for her “mommy”.
The concerned citizen had found the child about 10 minutes earlier, called a friend and then called MACECOM 911 Dispatch. Mason County Deputies responded, also requesting for Child Protective Services to respond. The little girl was placed into protective custody while Deputies conducted a search of the neighborhood for the parents.
Word of mouth spread that a little girl had been found and that the parents were missing. Around 10:52 AM, the parents were located and advised law enforcement that they had been asleep, but when they realized that their little girl was missing, they began looking for her.
The residence where the child lives is located several blocks from where she was found. The parents will be interviewed by Child Protective Services and it is unknown at this time if any charges will be filed.
Sheriff Casey Salisbury stated that we are all very thankful that the little girl was found by a concerned citizen and that the child is okay. Her welfare is the top priority.
