Social Media Helps Reunite Child With Parents

Huntingburg (NNDC) – Thanks to the power of social media, a toddler who wandered off from home early this morning was reunited with his parents a short time later.

Patrolman Rusty Drew says not long after the Huntingburg Police Department posted picture of the young boy on its Facebook page, someone who recognized him drove to the Circle K convenience store to tell police who the boy was and who his parents are.

The toddler wandered into the parking lot of the Circle K store along U. S. 231 at about 7:00am.

Drew says the parents were immediately contacted and reunited with their son.

Drew says, “Thank God someone recognized him almost immediately and this all turned out well.”
