A family went to a corn maze in West Jordan, Utah on Monday night, and the parents lost track of their three-year-old son, and somehow, didn’t realize it until the next morning!
They called the police and told them their son might still be in the maze. Fortunately, someone else found the kid on Monday night, but he couldn’t tell them enough about himself for them to find his family, so he wound up with child protective services.
So far, no charges have been filed, but the police are investigating how it could have taken the parents so long to call them.
For what it’s worth, the police say the parents showed up at their station with ten other kids, so maybe they just can’t keep track of all of them. Obviously, though, that’s not a good enough excuse.
