Police: 3-year-old left behind at West Jordan corn maze

Mother called police the next morning

WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Police say a mother didn't realize until Tuesday morning that her 3-year-old child had been left behind while visiting a corn maze Monday night.

Officers were called to the Crazy Corn Maze around 7:30 p.m. Monday on reports of a child left behind. They say they weren't able to find the child's parents, so the 3-year-old spent the night with Division of Child and Family Services.

Around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, police say they received a call from a mother saying she couldn't find her 3-year-old.

It was unclear as of Tuesday afternoon if the child had been placed back in his family's care. DCFS would not confirm, and police did not know. An earlier version of this story stated the child had been reunited with his family. Police are investigating the circumstances behind the incident.
