At roughly 12:15 pm Saturday, Antioch Police responded to reports of a small child wandering by herself along Gentrytown Drive in Antioch near Putnam.
According to radio traffic, good Samaritans found the child along the road and took her into their care and immediately called police. They comforted her while providing her with water.
As police were responding, a second call came in from the family of the missing child stating the child got out of the house while a 16-year-old babysitter was watching the child.
The child had wandered a little over a mile from the family home before police took the child into custody and returned the child home. The child had been missing for about 30-to-40 minutes.
No further details were provided on scene.
We intentionally are not providing the street address of the home where the child resides.
