Day After Visiting Maze, Mom Realizes 3-Year-Old Is Lost

A 3-year-old boy has been reunited with his family after being left at a corn maze in West Jordan near 8800 S. 4000 W.

The mother and child had been part of a large group, and she did not realize he got separated from the others, police Sgt. Joe Monson told the New York Daily News. Because the boy only revealed his age and the names of his brother and cat, the owners went vehicle to auto and throughout the maze, announcing that a lost child had been found, per KSL.

An officer called the Utah Division of Child and Family Services, who took the child in for the night. Police say the child's family didn't realize he was missing until the next morning.

Monson says the mother later arrived at the police station with about 10 children.


Police have issued no citations, noting the incident had been turned over the DFS for investigation and it is unclear rather or not they have released the child back into parental custody.

Authorities would not confirm whether the child has been returned to the mother. A police officer took the boy to her auto and played a movie for him, Fox 13 Salt Lake City reported.

Monson said he did not know much about the boy's family or how they were able to forget about him but he added that they live in a home with multiple families and a group of them had gone to the maze together Monday night.
