Gruebbel says the toddler is in critical condition.

She would not identify the child and says she could not provide details on the child's ordeal. She says extended family members are at the hospital with the child.

Melissa Richardson, a spokeswoman for the hospital in Salem, Ind. where the child was first taken, said the child's family is from New Pekin, Ind., and she was found near her home.
