A 4-year-old girl who was found alone at a Maryland Chuck E. Cheese restaurant over the weekend was reunited with her family, who didn’t notice the girl was missing until they saw her picture on the morning news.
Relatives of Deshawna Tyson told police that the girl was one of nine children driven to the Bel Air restaurant Sunday in separate cars driven by her aunt and her aunt’s boyfriend, The Baltimore Examiner reported. When the family arrived home, the children went straight to bed without noticing Deshawna was missing.
The mother of the girl also went to bed after coming home from work without checking on her daughter, The Examiner reported.
It wasn’t until 5 a.m. Monday that the mother and aunt saw Deshawna’s photo on the morning news and realized she had been left behind.
Authorities said the girl told them her name was Keyshanna. She was found in the restaurant at the Festival Shopping Center shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday. The girl reportedly told investigators that she was brought to the restaurant Sunday afternoon, possibly by someone the girl called "Uncle Damon."
The girl was reunited with the family and is working with social services on care and custody of the girl, the Harford County Sheriff’s Office told The Examiner.
