MISSING GIRL, 8, FOUND BACK AT HOME
Taylor and Dearborn Heights police have recovered an 8-year-old girl who was reported missing earlier this morning from the Comfort Inn & Suites on Telegraph Road in Taylor.
The girl's mother called Taylor Police at about 3 a.m. saying her daughter, Haley Poupard, was missing from the hotel. The girl’s father claimed he had left her sleeping in a pickup truck outside the hotel, while the mother had taken the two other siblings inside.
Police learned that the family had left or had been evicted from their home in Dearborn Heights. A room-to-room search of the hotel was conducted while other Taylor officers worked with Dearborn Heights Police to search that home and the girl has been recovered.
Taylor Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the girl being left behind. She and her siblings are being turned over to another family relative and Child Protective Services has been notified.
