Missing Child Found

Discovered about a half-mile from Woodbine residence

CORBIN — By LeeAnn Cain / Staff Writer

A child went missing on Mosley Branch in Woodbine around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

Emergency responders and the child’s family gathered around the residence in a desperate search for the child, hoping to find her before the elements took their toll.

The 3-year-old daughter of Kathy Brock wandered out of her family’s trailer while her mother was allegedly sleeping, according to Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell. Harrell and family members both alleged she likely followed a young beagle down the road toward a neighbor’s house.

Emergency responders searched for around half an hour for the child, and checked all of the places the child could have gone. She was quickly discovered down the road from the family’s home.

The child was found about a half-mile down the road from her home. Harrell said she was barefoot and in thin clothing.

A neighbor reportedly found her and wrapped her in blankets. The child seemed to show signs of hypothermia. Brock wailed that her child was “so cold she was falling asleep.”

Though she did not appear to be harmed, she was taken by Whitley County EMS to Baptist Health Corbin to ensure she was healthy.

“I’m thankful for the rescue people,” Brock said. “She’s my baby; she’s all I’ve got.”

Detective John Hill is continuing the investigation on the incident. Charges are pending on Brock.

Woodbine Fire and Rescue also responded to the scene.

After the ducklings were rescued and put in a box, one of those helping out, Daniel Wallen, took them to his farm, where a friendly pond awaited them. Son Dylan and stepdaughter Haley helped put the baby ducks into the water.
