SHELTON, Neb. (AP) - A 3-year-old girl discovered missing from her rural Shelton home has been found safe in a cornfield.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/2b68Zzk ) that the girl had been in her yard about six miles north of Shelton on Friday morning when her mother discovered her missing.

Family and friends first searched for the girl, but when they didn’t find her, called authorities around noon to report the girl missing.

Buffalo County Sheriff’s Capt. Bob Anderson says that about half-an-hour later, a family friend found the child in a field across the road from the home.

Anderson says the girl had no injuries and appeared to be healthy.



Shelton police, Buffalo County Sheriff’s deputies and volunteers with the Shelton and Gibbon fire departments were called out to help with the search.
