2-month-old recovered; parents charged with interference
The parents of a 2-month-old boy who was missing from Harrison for more than a day are both facing an interference with custody charge, a third-degree misdemeanor, after taking their son of whom they do not have custody.
Clint Reidmiller and Kelly Schmid were found along with their son, Cobain Reidmiller, at about 12:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the 3400 block of Cheviot Avenue in Cheviot.
Cobain was found safe, and has now been placed in foster care.
Harrison Police Department Lt. Detective Terry Lowry said Schmid and Reidmiller were found through phone pinging, and said it was a joint effort by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Cincinnati Police Department, and Cheviot police.
HPD had responded to the 200 block of North Hill Street at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, for the report of a critical missing child.
Schmid and Reidmiller are Cobain’s biological parents, but they do not have custody.
Cobain’s maternal grandmother received supervisory care of him a few weeks ago, said Lowry.
Schmid and Reidmiller were able to take Cobain after the grandmother thought another person with supervisory care was in the residence when she left for work, but they were not, said Lowry.
Schmid also was living at the residence, and Lowry said they believe Cobain was taken between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on that Wednesday.
Cobain is the only child Schmid and Reidmiller have together.
Schmid also faces charges of drug abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia.
