Larimer County Offices, Courts, District Attorney, and Landfill are closed Monday, May 27, 2019 for Memorial Day. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.

On March 9, 2019, at approximately 12:42 p.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a missing 23-month-old child.  It was reported that the child was playing in the yard with his older cousins.  The older kids went inside for a few minutes and when they came back out, they could not find the 23-month-old.

Deputies and investigators responded to the Cloverleaf Community in the 4400 block of East Mulberry Street and began searching for the child.  LCSO Emergency Services was also contacted and responded with members of Larimer County Search and Rescue (LCSAR).  Colorado State Patrol, Colorado State University Police, and UCHealth also responded to assist. 

LCSO patrol and LCSAR deployed K9s in attempts to track the child as deputies and LCSAR members began a systematic door-to-door search.  Investigators were also following leads obtained from witnesses in the area.  An Everbridge emergency notification was sent to 92 devices (not individual homes) in the area alerting residents and asking them to call LCSO if they located the child.

Deputies located the child inside a home in the same community at about 2:15 p.m.  Prior to being reunited with his family, the child was evaluated by on-scene UCHealth personnel and found to be unharmed.

In all, over 30 personnel responded to help search for the child.  LCSO is grateful to all our partner agencies for their assistance with this incident.
