SUMMARY: Deputies responded to an address in the 500 block of Kimberly on a report of a found child.  A resident was returning home when he was approached by a small child wearing pajamas and carrying pillow.  The child appeared to be 2-3 yrs. old and could not provide Deputies any identifying information.  Deputies canvassed the immediate area, knocking on doors and speaking with the Apartment Complex management in an attempt to locate the parents, with negative results.  Deputies had the Orion Township Fire Department respond to evaluate the child and she was found to be in good health.  The child was transported to the Orion Township Substation and Children’s Protective Services (CPS) were notified.

OUTCOME OF INCIDENT:    At 06:01 hrs. the Sheriff’s Office Operations Center received a 911 call from a resident in the Kimberly Apartments reporting a missing child.  She had returned home from work and discovered her boyfriend’s niece was missing.  Her boyfriend was left to watch the child overnight and reported they had gone to bed and the child was sleeping on the couch.  When the girlfriend returned home she found the front door ajar and the child missing.  The child’s parents were contacted and responded to the Orion Substation.  After being interviewed by CPS the child was returned to the custody of her parents.

RECOVERED CHILD:  3 yr. old, female resident of Oakland Township
