A happy ending after a frantic and lengthy search south of Woodstock for a missing two-year-old girl.
OPP announced just after 10 a.m. on Monday that Brooklyn Honderich had been found safe and sound, 15 hours after being reported missing.
Two volunteers searching a nearby cornfield found the toddler. Paramedics assessed Brooklyn and transported her to hospital in Woodstock as a precaution.
It was around 7 p.m. Sunday when the toddler disappeared into a corn field near Norwich. Prompting the frantic search.
An OPP helicopter, two sets of canine units, dozens of officers, and droves of volunteers combed through the cornfields near Caley and Baseline Roads overnight and into Monday morning until Brooklyn was found.
Police say the little girl was found about 1 kilometer away from where she was last seen.
Steve, the volunteer who found Brooklyn didn’t want to give his last name but says he credits his faith and prayers from others for finding the toddler.
“I called her name and I wasn’t hearing anything, and I said ‘Brooklyn, do you want to go to mommy?’ And I just heard a little girl crying, and I just followed the noise and it took me right to her.”
