The job of a police officer can be unpredictable, even at the best of times. A group of deputies from the Ouachita County Sheriff’s Department in Arkansas can certainly attest to that, as they found a toddler walking alone along a highway in August 2018. However, some time later, the cops discovered a horrific scene in a nearby ravine.
On the morning of August 20, 2018, a concerned member of the public contacted the Ouachita County Sheriff’s Department (O.C.S.D.). The police officers were told that a young boy had been spotted on Arkansas State Highway 24 on his own. With that in mind, they quickly made their way to the scene.
At that point, O.C.S.D. deputies picked the toddler up, taking him into their care. Thankfully he showed no signs of ill-health, despite a number of cuts and scratches on his body. From there, they transported him to the county’s Detention Complex, as the police department began its search for the toddler’s family.
