One mother from Qulin, Missouri experienced what every parent fears of. Her little girl was nowhere to be found. Remy Merritt is a 3-year-old adorable girl who went missing form her rural home.
Once the mother realized her baby girl was neither in the house, nor outside, she panicked and called the police.
“I looked for her by myself thinking maybe she was just in the woods or somewhere where I just couldn’t see her,” Timber, Remy’s mother told PEOPLE.
“And I was just calling for her and calling for here, and when she wasn’t calling back I realized ‘I don’t think I’m going to find her on my own.’”
The place where they live is a very friendly, so in a matter of minutes after the news spread, a great group of volunteers joined the search. The community was worried for the child’s safety because the place and the houses are all surrounded by fields of corn that can be difficult to navigate.
Helicopters searched for the girl and circled all around the place. But the wheat was way too high and obstructed the visibility.
The day had come to an end so the police and the volunteers had to end the search, in hopes that the new day will bring new hope.
“It was stressful and emotional,” a family friend told ABC News.
“We were all just walking back and forth from one end to the other just yelling her name.”
“All the flashlights started dying and the sheriff’s office decided to call it for the night.”
The search continued in the early morning hours.
The biggest problem was again the corn. “You don’t hear well in the corn,” a volunteer explained. “When somebody is yelling your name, you can hear them, but you don’t know where it’s coming.”
Finally, good news put everyone’s worry at ease. Remy was finally located. She was safe, but not alone!
Man’s best friend has confirmed once again why he gets to be called like that! The family’s pet terrier, Fat Heath, never left the girl’s side and kept her safe during the night
It if wasn’t for the dog God knows what would have happened to Ramy. Luckily, the police and the neighbors heard him barking and managed to locate the missing girl.
“The dogs yapping at each other is a neat little moment,” Parrot said.
Neither Ramy, nor Fat Heath were injured!
After they were admitted to hospital, the doctors said Remy was only exhausted and really thirsty.
A lot of bites and a little thirsty, but she got a clean bill of health and was returned back to her home afterward,” Parrot confirmed.
“She said she wasn’t scared because Fat Heath was there. If he wasn’t, I think she would’ve been terrified.”
