Toddler reunited with family after being left at West Jordan corn maze overnight

Police in Utah are investigating after a mother left her 3-year-old at a corn maze and didn't realize he was missing for 12 hours.

A 3-year-old boy was reunited with his parents Tuesday morning after his parents left him at a corn maze overnight.

Investigators went to the house and said several families live there together with multiple children.

Staffers called on a bullhorn and even walked through the maze searching for his family but couldn't find anyone.

The boy was found by a good Samaritan who took him to the maze staff.

Once they found the child, they tried to find his parents, but nobody came forward.

No citations or charges have been filed as of yet, according WJPD Sgt. Monson, but the case is still being investigated. Monson says she later arrived at the police station with about 10 children.

When they got home, the mother didn't realize her son was missing and ended up falling asleep while watching a movie, Monson said.

It's not clear if the child has been placed back in his family's care. The woman contacted authorities, and when the boy could not be identified, he spent the night with child protective services.
