FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
***Unidentified Toddler Found***
Anderson, SC (Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 12:15 p.m.) Anderson Sheriff’s Investigators are attempting to identify a toddler left in a stroller on the front porch of a local residence last night.
At approximately 11:30 p.m. on April 2, the doorbell rang at 417 Brook Forest Drive in Anderson. The residents answered the door and found a 2 to 3 year-old black female toddler in a stroller on his front porch. The residents did not know or recognize the child. No one else was around.
They immediately called 911 and a deputy with the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office responded. When the deputy arrived he discovered a diaper with the hand written message, “Call DCAF Please,” on it. An investigator was called, along with a representative with the Department of Social Services.
The child was taken into Emergency Protective Custody by law enforcement and transported to AnMed Health where she was examined, found to be in good condition and released. The medical staff observed a scar on the right side of her neck and the center of her chest that was consistent with heart surgery.
The child’s hair was braided and both ears were pierced with diamond stud earrings. She was clad in a white shirt with yellow sleeves (size 24 months) that bears the lettering “Auntie Loves Me” on the front, grey pants with a floral design and a pink jacket. She was also wearing a pink stocking cap and brown boots. Both the cap and boots had the picture of Dora the Explorer on them.
Investigators are working with adjoining state agencies and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to identify the child and the child’s family. The toddler is currently with a foster family.
If anyone has information, please contact the Andersons County Sheriff’s Office at 864-260-4400 or Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIMESC (274-6372).
