Officers were called to the Crazy Corn Maze around 7:30 p.m. Monday on reports of a child left behind.
A 3-year-old boy was reunited with his parents Tuesday morning after his parents left him at a corn maze overnight. Police and the Division of Child and Family Services are investigating the circumstances behind the incident.
Police say they received a call from the boy's mother saying she couldn't find her 3-year-old.
It wasn't until Tuesday morning that the mother realized that her child went missing. After closing time, the owners took the boy to the police station and officers then contacted the state's Child and Family Services.
Police sent the mother to DCFS, who said she would need to be questioned before they returned her child to her. Police and DCFS will work together with the family to see if it was an oversight, an accident, or if charges are warranted.
"At 7:42 a.m. today, the mother woke up and noticed he was missing".
"This was a case of multiple families with multiple children living in the same home."
