One-year-old Robert Patrick Hagerty was located under the care of a grandparent in Volusia County by the Daytona Beach Police Department.
One-year-old Robert Patrick Hagerty of Ocala was found Thursday after he was reported missing on Jan. 25.
The child was first reported missing after a court order was issued to take him into custody and both he and his mother couldn’t be found. Ocala police had checked on him earlier in the day on Jan. 25 on behalf of the Department of Children and Families out of Tampa, said Sgt. Angy Scroble, Ocala Police Department spokeswoman.
“There was no indication at the time that the child was in danger,” Scroble said. A missing child alert was issued when officials couldn’t confirm Robert was being given the proper medication, she said.
The Daytona Beach Police Department learned Thursday that Robert’s mother K’Tina White left him in a grandparent’s care in Volusia County. White has not been located and has a warrant for failing to appear and for violating a court order, Scroble said.
