State trooper fighting against darkness finds missing 2-yr-old that clutches onto him & won’t let go


State Trooper Brian recalls reaching the top of the mountain and feeling winded. He was surrounded by the green and brown of the trees when he suddenly spotted a pink dot in the distance.

When a two-year-old girl went missing in South Bristol, New York, officers knew that they were under a huge amount of time pressure to find her.

Missing children during the day is one thing- but when night comes and the temperature drops, it becomes even more dangerous.

A New York State Trooper named Brian Hotchkiss was the man in charge of the search party- and he was well aware of how serious the situation was.
“These missing kids, it can go really bad. It’s time-sensitive depending on the time of year, so although it was a nice day the temperature was dropping,” Brian said.

He and the search party spent some time knocking on doors through the neighborhood, but no one seemed to know the whereabouts of the little girl.

As night fell, Brian made the decision to begin climbing the mountain that was half an hour from the girl’s home.

It took half an hour to reach the top of the mountain, by which time Brian was ‘winded’. All he could see at first was the green and brown of the trees.

But then, he spotted a pink dot in the distance.
The speck of pink was stationary on a rock next to the stream. Brian’s heart dropped as he began to run over. He hoped that the child was alive.
“I followed the stream and I located the child, she was lying on her stomach on a rock, and I ran over as quick as possible and I saw her arm move and I knew she was alive and my heart just dropped. I was so excited, I ran up and she hugged me immediately, she wouldn’t let go,” he said.

It was clear that the little girl was relieved to have been found. She clung onto Brian as if her life depended on it- which in a way, it did!

It may have been a completely different story if Brian hadn’t have decided to take his search party up the mountain.
The girl was shivering when Brian got to her, so another trooper wrapped her in his uniform to warm her up.

She was then taken away in an ambulance to check that she was okay. Thankfully, the hospital gave her the all-clear, and she was able to go back home again.

Brian was left reflecting on the dramatic events of that day.
“I still can’t get that out of my head, her turning over and looking at me and throwing her hands up in the air. I’ll never forget that,” he said.

The story of the little girl’s rescue was shared on news outlets all over the US, and people took to the comments section on YouTube to praise Brian’s quick thinking.

One person said: “Thank you very much for your service, sir, and be careful out there. We can’t afford to lose you.”

Another added: “Heartwarming situation…. Good Job Trooper!”
