3-Year-Old Left In Corn Maze, Mother Says She Didn’t Notice Him Missing Until The Next Day

A Utah mom said she accidentally left her child at a corn maze and didn’t realize the three-year-old boy was missing until the next day, police said.

Employees at the Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan called police at about 7:30 pm on Monday after they found the boy wandering around the maze by himself, with no one claiming him at the maze’s closing.

“He was crying and upset and obviously scared,” Kendall Schmidt, co-owner of the corn maze, in an interview with The Washington Post. “We were trying to calm him down.”

The employees waited about 30 minutes for the family to come and look for the boy.

“It became evident that they were not in the maze, so we just kept waiting and hoping that the parents would realize that they left the child,” Schmidt said.

The boy stayed with the Utah Division of Child and Family Services overnight. His mother
