Ohio Toddler Rescued: Missing 2-year-old Trumbull County girl found safe “Video”

Ohio toddler rescued in field 2 days after she was reported missing.

After disappearing for two days, 2-year-old Rainn Peterson was found Sunday evening unharmed in a field off Peck-Leach Road, less than a half mile south of the North Bloomfield home where she had been staying.

Authorities found Rainn, cold but apparently in a stable condition about 800 metres from where she had been reported missing. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Searchers on horseback had combed through fields while a helicopter hovered above Sunday in the hunt for Rainn in an area near the community of North Bloomfield, just north of Warren and Youngstown near the Pennsylvania state line.

Authorities concentrated the search around the home in rural northeastern Ohio, going through wooded areas, backyards and drainage pipes.

Trumbull County Sheriff Tom Altiere said early on Sunday, before Rainn was found, that there were no signs of foul play. Deputies had searched the family’s home several times and had given polygraph tests to the toddler’s relatives, he said.

Search dogs on Saturday briefly picked up Rainn’s scent just down the street from where she was reported missing, the sheriff said.

A volunteer discovered the missing toddler sleeping in tall grass, according to a Fox News report.

“I found baby Rainn and she’s alive!” the volunteer said to an emergency services operator in a recorded conversation.

“Is that her I hear?” the emergency dispatcher asks after hearing the two-year-old girl crying in the background. “I hear her. Oh, I just got goosebumps.”

“Oh my God, me too,” the volunteer responds. “I couldn’t give up on this kid. Thank God.”

Rainn and her two brothers, ages 3 and 4, were staying with their great-grandparents on Friday when they reported her missing.

Rainn’s mother, Brandi Peterson, said her children had been staying with the couple because she was moving into an apartment. She said her grandmother was in the kitchen and the three children were with her grandfather in another area of the house when the toddler walked away.

“She’s two years old and goes to strangers,” Peterson told WFMJ-TV in Youngstown before her daughter was found. “She goes to anybody. She is just an innocent little girl.”

The sheriff said the family had cooperated with investigators and there were no signs of violence at the home.
