Neighbor finds missing 2-year-old girl on front porch in Chattanooga
A toddler has been reunited with her family after she reportedly wandered from her home in Chattanooga Wednesday.
Chattanooga Police say they were called to a home on Noa St. around 2 a.m.
"We found family members frantically looking for their 2-year-old daughter," Lt. Charlie Brown said.
Lt. Brown said the parents told investigators they hadn't seen their daughter since 1:50 a.m.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office brought out a drone and a K-9 unit to help in the search.
But she was found about two hours later on Brian Eagle's porch, about two blocks away.
"I pulled in, seen the little girl asleep on the chair on the front porch, so I grabbed her took her down to the police," Eagle said.
The moment was captured on Eagle's home security camera.
The little girl was checked out by medical personnel who said she appeared to be in good health, just sleepy.
Investigators are still working to figure out how the toddler was able to leave her home.
"There was a number of family members in the house and not sure at this point, based on cameras that we did search directly across from the house, it looked like she might have gone out the back but somehow came out the front," Brown said.
