Joliet police locate parents of missing child

Toddler found in Reedswood neighborhood, police say

Joliet police asked for the public’s help Sunday afternoon after a toddler was found alone in the Reedswood area.

Police found a 2- to 3-year-old girl about 2 p.m. Sunday in the Reedswood neighborhood in Joliet, according to an alert. She is white with long blonde hair and blue eyes and is wearing a purple shirt, purple sparkly pajama pants and a diaper, according to the alert.

The child’s verbal skills are limited, so she could not provide police with any identifying information.

Police sent out a second alert about 2:45 p.m. Sunday, saying the toddler’s parents had been located.
