HOUSTON – After her first day of school, Olivia Reynolds’ parents anxiously waited for her at the corner of their block where the bus was supposed to drop her off.
However, when the bus arrived, there was just one problem. Olivia wasn’t on it.
The 6-year-old’s mother went searching for her baby and found her miles away, alone and shaken.
”We sent our daughter off to school [and] everything seemed to be fine,” said her father, Eric.
But when the 6-year-old didn’t come home from her first day at Anderson Academy, he says the bus driver uttered words that made his heart drop.
”[The bus driver] goes and checks every aisle just to make sure. He said ‘Yeah, your daughter did not get on the bus,’” Eric said.
He says his wife immediately scrambled to find her. ”She just so happened to see our 6-year-old daughter on the corner of Garden City Apartments,” he said.
It was two miles away from the bus stop where little Olivia should’ve been left.
