The distraught toddler was discovered by a good Samaritan on Monday night near the entrance of the Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan, near Salt Lake City.

One of the corn maze owners, Kendall Schmidt, said they did everything they could, including going vehicle to auto.

Schmidt, 42, from South Jordan, said it is not unusual for family members to get lost or separated in the corn maze, so when someone first found the toddler, "we weren't in panic mode right away".

On Tuesday morning at around 7:40 a.m., the parents of the child called West Jordan Police Department and reported the child missing.

The child was said not to be injured.

Dodgers Sweep D-backs in NLDS
Kenley Jansen earned his second save of the series as the closer appeared in all three games for the Dodgers of the NLDS. Curtis Granderson entered as a pinch-hitter for the Dodgers and went 1-for-2 with a run scored.

According to Fox 13, police were called to the Crazy Corn Maze around 8 p.m. on Monday after they received a report of a child left behind.

Investigators followed the boy home, where he lives with multiple families and about 10 or more children, Monson said.

"The fact that it took so long for them to realize the child was missing - was it purely an accident?" Once they found the child, they then tried to locate his parents, but no one came forward.

Police sent the mother to DCFS, who said she would need to be questioned before they returned her child to her.
