    MS - William Odom, 2, Saucier, 3 Oct 2017

    SAUCIER
    A 2-year-old child who has been missing for several hours is William Anthony David Odom, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

    The search is around the 19400 block of Pete Hickman Road, where the child’s mother and aunt searched for several hours before they called the sheriff’s department around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Peterson said.


    The child has autism and was wearing only diapers when last seen.

    Peterson released the boy’s name and a description later Tuesday as the search continued. The boy weights 35 pounds, is 3-foot-tall, has blue/hazel eyes and a brown shaven head.

    I am glad he was found safe. They got very, very lucky, IMO. I hope authorities will investigate how the child went missing, exactly. If this has happened before...something needs to change.

    Those children with autism who are "runners" really need extra eyes. I know of a family close to me that got a specially trained dog that the child was tethered to. The dog was awesome. He would pull back and not let the child run off. Interesting as well that the child and the dog created a very cool bond and the child actually was calmed by the dog's presence. A win win all the way around.

    A 2-year-old child who disappeared from his rural home early Tuesday walked several miles through woods before he crawled into a car and locked the door, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

    “He probably walked three or four miles through the woods, and his dog stayed right by his side until he got in the car,” Peterson said.

    Even then, the dog stayed around the car, he said.

    The boy, only in a diaper, was on a piece of property where a car was unlocked and its windows were cracked.

    William, who has autism, started honking the car’s horn around the time a school bus stopped nearby, Peterson said. A student got off the bus and heard the honking and went to check it out, and found the child, Peterson said. The student got his uncle, who notified officials.

    Smart boy to honk the horn. So happy this little one was found safe!

    Sheriff: Toddler's dog stayed with him the entire time he was missing

    “Every time we found his footprint, we found the dog footprint right beside him. So the dog traveled with him all day," Peterson said. "When the little boy was found the dog was still circling the truck and scratching on the truck."

    Peterson said at this time he doesn't suspect foul play.

    "We believe he just did this on his own," he said.

    Odom was found by another child who was just getting off a school bus. That child heard the truck's horn beeping and when he walked over he saw Odom and told his uncle.
    "His uncle came over and forced the window down. And took the kid out and brought him to us," said Peterson.

    What a smart doggie! So happy this had a good ending.

    Will someone please alert mods to change this thread to "found safe"? I alerted yesterday but it must have gotten overlooked (I know mods are busy all the time).

    The mother of a 2-year-old child who went missing for six hours on Tuesday was arrested on a misdemeanor child neglect charge Wednesday, Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said.

    It was the second time Chelsea Noble’s toddler, who has autism, has been reported missing, Peterson said.

    Noble, 21, was at home when her toddler, William Odom, wandered out of his home in the 19400 block of Pete Hickman Road, Peterson said.

    10 year old finds missing 2 year old: http://www.stltoday.com/news/world/m...49c6faf76.html

    Today was no ordinary school day for ten-year-old Blake Carroll and yesterday afternoon was far from usual after he stumbled upon a life-saving mission, rushing for help when he came across missing two-year-old William Odom.


    Tuesday afternoon, Saucier Elementary School fifth grader Blake Carroll thought he was going on a fun adventure in his backyard fort, but ended up being a vital part of a rescue mission. “I heard a horn honking and my uncle’s truck,” said Blake, “My uncle don’t get home that early so when I went to the truck, I heard the baby crying and that’s what caught my attention. When I got home, about 20 minutes after, I found the missing two-year-old.”

    Out of my four, one was a runner. We installed a chain high up on the front door to prevent something like this.

    William wandered several miles!

    His dog must have been exhausted and thirsty too.

    Wonder why his head is shaved. Maybe lice?

    Wonder how many other children were removed.

    So glad he's safe!
