The two were located early this morning by personnel with the Town of Cary Police Department. Investigators with the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office learned that the missing mother and child were likely in North Carolina late last week.

The two were reported missing by family members on April 26 after they reportedly left their home on Sanderson Drive in Sterling three days earlier.
