Ohio toddler found alive after 2-day search remains hospitalized

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – After a volunteer found missing Trumbull County toddler Rainn Peterson Sunday evening following a two-day search, many are wondering what happened to her during her time missing.

Volunteers found Rainn in a field less than a mile from her Route 45 home in North Bloomfield. She went missing Friday evening, and all reports to this point indicate that she spent two nights outside.

Hundreds of volunteers searched the area for two days before the little girl was found lying down in high grass of off Peck Leach Road.

Wednesday, WKBN-TV is talking with a medical expert and the family to piece together exactly what Rainn faced during her days lost and alone.

Peterson suffered from dehydration and low body temperature in the wet, cold and rainy conditions.

Medical personnel at St. Joseph’s Medical Center have been treating Peterson for the past two days but have not said anything about her condition. Peterson’s great-grandparents have said she’s doing well.

The Bristol Fire Dept. is having a toy drive for Rainn Peterson until October 31. Those interested in participating can drop their gifts off at the department, located at 2100 Greenville Rd., at any time. Fire workers are asking for new stuffed animals and toys, will not accept money, and will donate any excess toys to the Toys for Tots Drive.
