Missing toddler had driven himself to local fair on toy tractor

The two-year-old was reunited with his dad by police.


A two-year-old boy was reunited with his family after driving his toy tractor by himself to the fair.

The youngster took off on his own on his battery-powered vehicle to go to the Chisago County Fair in Rush City, Minnesota, on Thursday night, police revealed in a Facebook post.

According to reports, the unnamed child lived only a block and a half away from the fairground and was not apart from his parents for more than a few minutes.

We are out at the Chisago County Fair all night and through the duration of the fair. Stop by our booth and say hello!...

But police said: “First call of the night at the county fair was a missing 2 year old who drove his tractor from home, to the fair. He was reunited with Dad.”

While the boy, who was reportedly found near the Waltzer, was unhurt, he did not emerge completely unscathed.

Police said his dad “promptly suspended his son’s license by removing the battery”.
