Police found a Karns City child safe on Sunday afternoon, after he was reported missing late last week.
State Police and Children Youth Services went to take custody of three-year-old Hollen Hile of Karns City on Friday night. Before police arrived, the child’s father, 37-year-old Patrick Hile of Karns City was seen fleeing into the woods.
Police received a call about Hile’s location on Sunday, and authorities found both Patrick Hile and his son at a home on Chicora Road in Butler County. Patrick was arrested and Hollen Hile was given to CYS and placed into foster care.
Hile is in the Armstrong County Prison facing two felony charges.
