Toddler Sighting at 1am Prompts Search

The following is a release from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department:

About twenty-five public safety officials spent better than six hours searching for a child at Godley Station in Pooler. The search ended shortly after 7am but no child was located or reported missing.
 
The search began 1:30am Friday after a woman walking her dog in the Merritt Apartments parking lot reported a small child walking alone in the complex. She reportedly tried to identify the child but was unsuccessful.
 
The reported toddler, ranging in age 2-3, ran off as the woman approached. The child was described as a White or Hispanic male with curly hair, wearing a diaper and white pullover shirt.
 
As a precaution, Savannah-Chatham Police began canvassing the complex at 1515 Benton Boulevard and areas nearby, although no missing child reports had been filed. Chatham Emergency Management, Savannah Fire/Rescue, Pooler and Garden City Police joined the search efforts.
 
K-9s were summoned as police and emergency rescue officials went door-to-door in the complex with no results. Anyone coming in contact with a lost child is urged to call the SCMPD Special Victims Unit at 651-6742.
