Police seeking Michigan mother after toddler found unresponsive in locked in car with crack pipe

Authorities say they found a 2-year-old boy sleeping in a locked vehicle with a crack pipe and a juice bottle containing alcohol inside.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department in Michigan says deputies found the vehicle with apparently fresh front-end damage early Saturday. Inside was an unresponsive toddler.

“They tried to wake the child. The child wouldn’t respond. So, they gained access using lockout tools. Checked on the child Called EMS. Had the EMS come over and check the stats and vitals of the child. The child was determined to be in fine shape but very, very tired,” said Sheriff Michael Bouchard. “Put him in a patrol car where it was heated.”

Investigators say the child’s 49-year-old aunt later arrived at the scene and said she had been with the child’s 44-year-old mother, who had run out of gas.

The Sheriff’s Department says the aunt told investigators the mother left in search of drugs while she had left with the intention of finding gas for the vehicle.

The child was fine and released to the custody of his father. Police are seeking the mother. Child neglect charges are possible against the aunt and the mother.
