Wednesday’s rescue of Kamiyah Vicks was caught on police body camera. Officers said Kamiyah was thirsty and only had minor scrapes when they found her.
Kamiyah was last seen near a wooded area close to her home in Port Wentworth. According to Major Lee Sherrod from the Port Wentworth Police Department, her mother was seen pushing the child in a stroller on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday morning at around 7 a.m., she was seen without her daughter. Sherrod said the mother called police about her missing child.
When police arrived, Kamiyah's mother was in distress in what appeared to be a crisis situation. They deployed a search team and discovered the stroller and the mother's flip-flops near a neighborhood pond. It was a team of Savannah Police Department recruits that found the 2-year-old crying in the woods. The cadets have all graduated from the Police Academy, but this is just the second week of their seven-week training session with Savannah Police Department.
The mother was hospitalized and was interviewed by investigators from the Port Wentworth Police Department. Kamiyah was also taken to the hospital. She only suffered minor cuts and scrapes, and was in "good spirits," the police department says.
This is what The Savannah Police Department posted about the resue and the little girl. So happy she was in such great spirits
