A three-year-old boy was left at a Utah corn maze Monday night

Jensen advises that corn maze owners build a fence around the maze to keep out anyone who may want to cause trouble.

A 3-year-old boy was found alone by employees of the Crazy Corn Maze in West Jordan, Utah, and no one stepped forward to claim him before it closed.

The boy was found by a good Samaritan who took him to the maze staff.

"He was upset and crying and really scared", Schmidt said.

"Noticing that something didn't look right, taking action, notifying our officer so that the child didn't spend the night - with the temperatures we're having - out in the middle of the corn maze with nobody aware of it", Monson said.

Jensen also advises corn maze owner to walk through their corn maze every night before they close. He wasn't able to tell them his name, but he was able to communicate his age.

His mother called police at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday after noticing that her son was missing.

According to officials, the following morning, the child's mother woke up and realized that he wasn't at home and that he might have been left behind at the corn maze. When the staff member failed to find boy's parents inside the maze, they waited for someone to return in search of the lost boy.

Investigators followed the boy home, where he lives with multiple families and about 10 or more children, Monson said.

No citations have been issued, but an investigation conducted by DCFS is still underway.

Nobody return for the boy, the boy was kept by the Utah Division of Child and Family Services overnight.
