LORAIN, Ohio (AP) – A toddler who went missing in Lorain County has been found.

The 2-year-old girl was found around 1:15 a.m. Thursday. Police tell WEWS-TV that a neighbor called 911 after finding Lowther crawling in the snow about half a mile from her home. Police say she has been hospitalized.

Lana Lowther disappeared around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday in Lorain, about 25 miles west of Cleveland.
