Search teams and volunteers are breathing a sigh of relief today after 2 year old Rainn Peterson was found alive.
After disappearing for two days, 2-year-old Rainn Peterson was found Sunday evening unharmed in a field off Peck-Leach Road, less than a half mile south of the North Bloomfield home where she had been staying. She was taken to a healing center for assessment.
‘I found baby Rainn and she’s alive!’ Sutton told the dispatcher, in audio released of his 911 call.
“Is that her I hear?”
Trumbull County Sheriff Thomas Altiere said the girl was at the home with her two brothers, ages three and four, as her great-grandparents watched them while her mother Brandi Peterson moved into a new apartment.
One of the challenges is that Rainn, last known to be wearing a purple shirt, gray trousers and pink and lime green shoes, could be tough to spot if she’s in a field or hiding in a barn, he said. “I couldn’t give up on this kid”.
Searchers on horseback had combed through fields while a helicopter hovered above Sunday in the hunt for Rainn in an area near the community of North Bloomfield, justnorth of Warren and Youngstown near the Pennsylvania state line.
A post on the Ohio Attorney General’s website said the girl could possibly be either lost, injured or missing.
The only door that was reportedly unlocked at the time was door to the garage.
