Diaper-Clad Child, 2, Found Walking Across 23 Mile Road in New Baltimore

The New Baltimore police and Macomb County Child Protective Services have launched a joint investigation after a 2-year-old girl wearing nothing but a diaper was seen walking on 23 Mile Road on Thursday morning.

Employees from a hair salon in New Baltimore rescued a 2-year-old girl wearing nothing but a diaper from walking across a heavily congested portion of the 36000 block of 23 Mile Road on Thursday morning. 

The were called just before 10 a.m. to do a health and safety check after receiving several complaint calls of a “young, soaking wet child walking in the roadway, wearing only a diaper,” according to a police-issued statement.

Several motorists told police the child was about to walk across the street when employees from a nearby hair salon ran out and removed the child from the street and the rainy weather conditions.

New Baltimore police said they were able to find the child's parents at their home just two blocks from where the child was found. EMS was called and looked over the child for any immediate medical needs.

A joint investigation between the New Baltimore police and the Macomb County’s Child Protective Services Division has been launched.

I bet this is the SAME little girl I found wandering on the street by herself weeks ago. Cute little blonde on that same block. If so, I hope that the police and protective services take a very very close look at her family. It does happen that a child can wander off but more than once like that and that far away? In my instance, they weren't even out looking for her. Seriously. Poor baby.
