Police say missing 3-year-old Mercer County child located, and is OK

PRINCETON — The parents of a child who was reported missing from his Mount Horeb Road home in Mercer County at about 8:15 p.m., on Thursday evening, has been found by his parents and is OK.

“The parents had searched the entire home and were unable to find him, but he was apparently hiding on the bed,” Deputy D.A. Furches of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department said. Furches and his K-9 partner, Maggie, a bloodhound, responded to the call and learned that when the family went back into the house, they found the boy asleep on top of the bed.

“I was relieved,” Furches said. “Of course, it’s good for Maggie to get a call to help, but I was happy that the child was inside the home and safe.”
