The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office says an Evansville father was arrested on multiple charges on Tuesday evening after his missing child was found running down Diamond Avenue.
The incident began on Tuesday around 7:00 p.m. when VCSO deputies were sent to a home in reference to a missing person report.
At the home, deputies spoke with a mother, who said her child had gone missing after her husband, 41-year-old Corey Trueblood, had returned home without the child.
VCSO says Trueblood had left the home before deputies got there but that he was later found at Resurrection Catholic School on New Harmony Road in the driver's seat of his car with the car running.
According to VCSO, Trueblood said he had drank "four beers" and admitted to losing his child and not knowing where the child was.
VCSO says Trueblood failed multiple field sobriety tests and that a small amount of marijuana was also found in his vehicle at the time of the incident.
They say that a short time later, the child was found by volunteer firefighters with the German Township Fire Department, running east on Diamond Avenue, just west of Mesker Park Drive.
Trueblood was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail on charges of Neglect of a Dependant, Possession of Paraphernalia, and OMVWI.
