2 year old toddler found dead

Most of you guys have probably already heard about this. I can't wrap my head around the fact they let a 2 year old baby outside the house alone to play. And then as far to say "it wasn't like him to wander away from home without the family dog" really? a little baby?? Rural area or not, hungry animals, all sorts of danger for a baby. Horrible judgement. its a sad story and as also a parent here, it must be devastating and a horribly hard pill to swallow.

this is what led up to him getting lost. ive watched young kids before and i sure as fuck wouldnt let them wander around outside by themselves with only occasional glances from a window and a sleeping dog to watch him

Full-scale search to find Chase - Winnipeg Free Press

Turner said her son was last seen around 6 p.m. Tuesday in the yard of the family home where he lives with her, father Tom Martens, and his sisters, aged six and seven.

Chase had been in the yard with his dad, who had been loading his truck. Father and son went for a ride to the store and returned.

The father dressed Chase in his boots, splash pants, hat and mitts, and the boy went outside as his dad went inside. The girls were inside watching TV.

Chase’s mother last saw her son through the window as she got ready to cook supper.

The boy was heading around the side of the house, and Turner thought he was going to hop on a tractor parked outside the home, something he likes to do.

When the parents went outside to call Chase to come in for supper, there was no response.

Her active and happy son has never wandered off, Turner said.

"He’s outside all the time, and I will call him once and he’ll go, ‘What!’" Turner said, adding her son never strayed past a wood pile in their yard.

Usually, the pets follow Chase, but their cats and their dog, Bingo, were lying on the ground outside the house.

Turner said she searched the dirt road that leads to the house and scanned the surrounding fields. When she reached the main road, she called to Chase, but there was no response.

"That’s when the panic started to sink in," she said.

Turner ran back to her property where Tom was calling to Chase as he searched the bush.

She said it had been no longer than 15 minutes from the time she saw Chase through the window until they realized he wasn’t there.

Things can change in a second, last night the news said he was a mere 50 meters away from the house in a creek. RIP little one.
