LONDON, Ont. – Police say a two-year-old girl who went missing in a corn field north of London, Ont., has been found and is safe.

The girl went missing Tuesday night after a group of children playing in the field that surrounds a home returned to the residence without her.

Family members and neighbours searched the property but weren’t able to find the girl so they contacted police.

Provincial police set up a perimeter and conducted a grid search with the help of a canine unit, volunteer fire fighters and other volunteers.

A military helicopter from CFB Trenton, and an Ontario Provincial Police helicopter also helped with the search.

The search area was described as approximately 100 acres or the equivalent of 75 football fields.
