HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

The mother of the missing toddler who was found after a seven-hour search Tuesday has been charged with misdemeanor child neglect.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson said investigators determined Chelsea Noble, 21, was not properly supervising her son, William Odom, which allowed him to go missing from their home in Saucier.

William was found safe after an extensive search involving several agencies.
