A small child was reported missing Monday morning from a home in Charleston on Geiger Road, but was quickly found after law enforcement was notified.

Charleston Police Chief Hank Hayden found the 2-year-old girl unharmed.

According to Hayden, the youngster’s father had fallen asleep with the toddler, but she later reportedly woke up and slipped out the door of the home unnoticed.

Deputies and Charleston Police responded to the area and within minutes of notification, Hayden located the child.

Deputy Tim Robinson filed a report for the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

- A property owner who had been out of town returned to discover he had been the victim of a burglary.

John Heifner of Dry Valley Road told deputy Doug Graham he had been remodeling a mobile home and left a number of tools at the job site. Heifner went to the vacant mobile home to do some work and noticed pry marks on a door.

Missing were a Dewalt saw, a Craftsman mitre saw, a Black & Decker jigsaw, an 18-volt cordless drill, a Bostich nailer, a brad nailer and hose and other tools.

The missing items were valued at $825.

- Danny Hickman of a Carriage Lane address also reported several tools missing from his garage.

Graham filed a report for Hickman during the weekend.

Hickman said the theft of a Kobalt saw, DeWalt reciprocating saw and Winchester hedge trimmer could have occurred sometime in May.

The tools were taken from an attached garage and there were no signs of forced entry.

The loss was estimated at $290.
