Child left behind at Utah corn maze

Child left behind at Utah corn maze

The boy was visiting the maze in West Jordan on Monday, Oct. 9, with a large family group, but was left behind.

"He couldn't tell us his name, he could say he was three years old, [that] was about it", Police Sgt. Joe Monson told Fox Carolina. When the group returned home, they watched a movie and she dozed off, unaware that she had left her child. The owner, Kendall Schmidt, took a bullhorn and went into the maze, announcing a child had been found.

It wasn't until 7:40 a.m. the next day that the child's mother called the police to report him missing.

Police said the mother later arrived at the police station with about 10 children.

Authorities in West Jordan, Utah said someone noticed the boy was alone in the maze Monday night and brought the boy to the attention of the maze staff.

"The fact that it took so long for them to realize the child was missing - was it purely an accident?"

"This was a case of multiple families with multiple children living in the same home."

KUTV reported the child was returned to the parents, but spokeswoman for the DCFS, Ashley Summer, told the Salt Lake Tribune she could not confirm the child's status because of privacy policies.

Police are investigating to determine whether to file any charges.
