A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor child abuse after his 4-year-old daughter was found wandering near the intersection of Murray Boulevard and Platte Avenue just before 9 a.m. Tuesday. Police said Ryan Kauffman saw his daughter's photo on the news and called police around noon to report that she was missing. Almost three hours earlier, the girl, named Olivia, had been found unharmed while attempting to walk to McDonald's. Barbara Miller, police spokeswoman, said Olivia's mother was at work Monday morning and her father fell asleep while taking care of her.

Olivia was wearing a pink pajama top with a mermaid design when she was found.

The Department of Human Services was notified, and Olivia has since been reunited with her mother.
