Mom: I Put Toddler to Bed, Never Saw Him Again
Noah Tomlin   (Hampton Police)

Noah Tomlin was wearing a green and white pajama shirt and a diaper when his mother put him to bed around 1am Monday. She hasn't seen him since, police in Hampton, Virginia, say. The 2-year-old was reported missing later Monday morning when his mother returned to the room to find him gone about 10 hours later, ABC 11 reports. "We're considering everything from the child just walking off—though, at 2 years old, probably not able to walk too far, all the way up to and including foul play," says the local police chief. The Virginian-Pilot notes there is a creek and a fishing pier near the mobile home park where the family lives. Police are asking anyone with information to call them at (757) 727-6111.
