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.

WLOX News Now interviewed a visibly emotional Noble after William was found.

Peterson said the Mississippi Department of Human Services took custody of Noble's children, including William, when she was arrested Wednesday. Noble was booked into the Harrison County jail on a $1,500 bond.
