Utah parents left 3-year-old at corn maze

A 3-year-old boy was found wandering alone through a 10-acre corn maze in northern Utah after his family left him behind, not realizing the small child was missing until the next morning, police say.

Authorities cared for the child until his mother called police at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday when she realized her son was missing.

The mother of a three-year-old boy who was left behind in a Utah corn maze claims it was all an accident.

"Sounds like this is a dwelling with multiple families and a lot of children living in the same home", Monson told the station.

Monson said the Division of Child and Family Services can not release the status of the child because of privacy policies.

His mother ended up calling police on Tuesday morning.

"They had staff out with bullhorns announcing they had found a child, they waited at the gate, but no one showed up for the child", Monson said. What where the circumstances?

'What's odd to me is they didn't notice when they got home, or noticed by bedtime, or noticed in the night, ' Schmidt said to KUTV.
