Crews in El Paso County are searching for a missing child.
According to the El Paso county Sheriff's office, State Patrol passed a woman along I-25 near the Pueblo county line around 8:30 Saturday morning. Sheriff's deputies say her car was pulled over, and she looked like she was working on something.
Later that day, the El Paso County Sheriff's office began receiving calls about a woman wandering in the area between mile markers 119 and 132. As deputies were responding, State Patrol returned to the scene and told deputies they had seen the same woman earlier in the day with a young child.
Lt. Lari Sevene, a spokesperson with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, says the woman was uncooperative as deputies began asking about the child. Lt. Sevene says it took a while to get any information from her. They eventually got information about the child's father; Lt. Sevene says the father told deputies that the child was with the mother earlier today and he doesn't know where it is now.
Search and Rescue as well as K-9 units are on scene looking for the child.
