Chuck E Chumps Forget Their Kid!

Harford County Sheriff''s Office

The parents of a 3-year-old girl in Maryland forgot their daughter at a Chuck E Cheese… And did not realize it until they saw the evening news!

The girl, named Harmony, was left behind at the theme restaurant in Bel Air, Md., after she attended a large party with her parents. According to a report from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office,  both of Harmony’s parents, who share custody, assumed the girl had gone home with other relatives.

A restaurant manager alerted sheriff’s deputies around 8 p.m.  that the girl had been left alone  after Harmony approached a staff member to say  she was thirsty.

Unable to locate the 3-year-old girl’s parents, the deputies asked local news media to put Harmony’s picture on the evening news.

Shortly after Harmony’s picture showed up on the 11 p.m. newscast, multiple phone calls came into the Sheriff’s Office, including calls from the girl’s  parents. After police determined that Harmony’s abandonment was inadvertent, Child Protective Services released her to her mother, and no charges are expected to be filed.

Calls to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office from ABC News were not immediately returned.

    That’s stupid. Why would you simply assume that your child left with relatives? It’d be different if the kid was in its teen ages and could pretty much take care of itself. I would’ve asked around before I left without my kid.
