#LASD Norwalk Deputies reunite parent and child found wandering in La Mirada

On Friday October 26, 2018, at approximately 10am, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputies from the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station responded to the 12000 block of La Mirada Boulevard in La Mirada regarding a small child found wandering alone.  Upon arrival, the deputies spoke to a good Samaritan who found the child in the area and became concerned.  The 3 year old  girl appeared healthy and unharmed, and deputies quickly began a search for the child’s parent or guardian.  Upon a search of the local residences, a neighbor thankfully recognized the child, which led to the discovery of responsible adult.  Apparently the child had absconded from the home unnoticed.  The mother was soon summoned, and was happy to see her child was found safe.  Thank you to all in the community who helped lead us to a happy ending.
