Missing 2-Year-Old Found Safe After Days of Searching

A missing Ohio toddler has been found safe after a grueling two day search.

Rainn Peterson was found 48 hours after she was reported missing in Ohio. A volunteer on the search located the toddler in a field of tall grass, reports WJW.

The volunteer, Victor Sutton, was riding his four-wheeler around the area when he spotted the girl sleeping in the field. He immediately called 911.

The field is located right off Peck Leach Road and State Route 45 in North Bloomfield, Ohio. The volunteer spotted her around 6:30 on Sunday night, one mile from the house where she was last seen.

According to audio of the phone call, the volunteer can be heard comforting Rainn, "You're okay, baby," before picking her up. Sutton told the 911 dispatcher that the child was covered in flies but was otherwise fine.

A few minutes into the call, the dispatcher hears Rainn begin crying.

"Is that her I hear?" she asks the caller. "I hear her. Oh, I just got goosebumps."

The volunteer replies, wholeheartedly:

By the end of the dispatch call, local authorities had already arrived and were placing the child in an ambulance. Baby Rainn was in stable condition on Sunday night, according to WJW.

Rainn disappeared on Friday evening around 6:30 and was last seen at the home of her great-grandparents. The toddler was found wearing the same purple shirt, gray pants and pink and lime green-colored shoes she went missing in.

Multiple agencies including the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the FBI, the Trumbull County sheriff's office, the Marshall's office as well as representatives from the Center for Missing and Exploited Children assisted in the search to find the missing toddler.

Authorities are currently investigating how and why the child went missing in the first place.
