BULLITT COUNTY, Ky (WAVE 3)  Charges are now expected in the coming days for a family member of a two-year-old Bullitt County girl who reappeared last week after being missing for more than 30 hours.

Two-year-old Charlee Campbell's maternal great-grandmother said that she believes the toddler was lost in the woods for the entire time she was missing last week and now that she's been found, the sheriff's office is wasting their time with an investigation. 

"I think it's silly they didn't find her," said Chesher. "She has just learned to unlock the deadbolt."

Chesher said that the family has been cooperative with officers from the start. She believes that neither neglect nor criminal intent had anything to do with Charlee's disappearance. 

Bullitt County Sheriff Donnie Tinnel isn't convinced.

"I'm suspicious of Beth and I am suspicious of Natalie," he said.

Natalie is Charlee's mother and Beth Campbell is Charlee's grandmother. Sheriff Tinnell said that Campbell wasn't initially forthcoming about who was in her home. A relative with outstanding warrants admitted to doing drugs with Beth hours before Charlee was reported missing from her grandparent's home. 

A Louisville television station is reporting that Sheriff Tinnel announced Campbell will be charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and neglect. Chesher acknowledged her daughter's faults but said Campbell would never hurt Charlee.

"Why would you take a baby, she had ticks all over her. My daughter bathed the dog and he had fat ticks on him and a tick gets bigger the longer it's on you. So that tells me another thing. They possibly were there the whole time," said Chesher.

    HANCOCK, N.Y.
