Search for Missing Michigan Toddler
Update: The two-year old girl missing from her home in Tawas City was found Thursday in a heavily wooded area with the help of tracking dogs. The girl, missing for nearly a full day when she was discovered, looked to be suffering from some cuts and bruises and possible problems associated with exposure to the cold temperatures, but is expected to recover fully. There is still no word on how she was able to leave her house unnoticed or whether any charges will be filed against her parents.
The search continued today for a 2-year old girl reported missing from her Tawas City home Wednesday.
