Missing Child Found In Mayville

On Tuesday at approximately 6:23pm the Fond du Lac Dispatch Center received a call of missing 8 year old female from a car dealership on South Rolling Meadows Drive in the City of Fond du Lac.  Several Fond du Lac police officers arrived on scene and began investigating the missing child and began searching.  The Fond du Lac County CART (Child Abduction Response Team) was activated to aid in the search of this child.  The CART team is a rapid response team designed to assist in child abduction or missing children type cases.  It is comprised of representatives from several public safety agencies from across Fond du Lac County.

The preliminary investigation showed that the parent was mistaken when he thought that he brought the child with him to Fond du Lac. At approximately 7:45pm the child was safely located in the City of Mayville.  In addition to the CART members, other agencies assisting in the search/investigation included Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office, Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue, Wisconsin State Patrol, Mayville Police Department and Flight for Life.
