A volunteer found Rainn Peterson curled up in a tall grass field, less than one mile from where she disappeared Friday night
A 2-year-old Ohio girl was found alive in a field Sunday night nearly 48 hours after she was reported missing.
Just after 6 p.m. on Sunday, a volunteer found Rainn Peterson curled up in a tall grass field just off of State Route 45 in North Bloomfield Ohio, less than one mile from where she disappeared Friday night WKYC reports.
The volunteer was searching the field on a four-wheeler when he found the young girl and immediately called 911.
“I found baby Rainn and she’s alive!” the man can be heard saying on the recording of the call.
“Hi baby, stay still,” he says before asking if he can pick the young girl up and reporting that she has “flies all over her.”
Minutes into the call, Rainn can be heard crying.
“Is that her I hear?” the dispatcher asks. “I hear her. Oh, I just got goosebumps.”
“Oh my God, me too,” the caller responds. “I couldn’t give up on this kid. Thank God.”
The young girl was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. She is reported to be in stable condition.
Investigators told WMFJ that the toddler spent nearly 48 hours in temperatures as low as 41 degrees with nearly one-third of an inch of rainfall.
Rainn went missing from her great-grandparents home on Friday evening around 6:30 p.m. Rainn’s mother Brandi Peterson told the Associated Press that her grandmother was in the kitchen and Rainn was with her grandfather and two brothers in another part of the house when the toddler just walked away.
Trumbull County Sheriff Thomas Altiere said there were no signs of foul play.
