15-month-old toddler Brier Rose Ineichen is now recovering after it was discovered that she had been left alone in the house for days after her grandmother died.

With the mother of the infant, Tracy Ineichen, having been in jail since September, the baby’s grandmother Annette was her only caretaker. So, when Annette unexpectedly passed away, Brier Rose was left alone. It is estimated that Brier Rose was on her own for at least 3 days and possibly as long as a week before she was found.

Tracy kept regular contact with her mother while she was in jail, so when she realized that she hadn’t heard from her since November 7th, she grew worried. After repeatedly trying to reach her mother, but being unable to get through, she contacted her boyfriend Anthony Waldo and asked him to go check on her mother and daughter.

When no one answered his knocking, Waldo looked into the windows of the house and saw that “Brier was in her crib and she stood up heard my voice and kind of reached out to me.” He was on the phone with Tracy at the time who instructed him to break the door down, knowing that the toddler would not have been left alone in the house unless something was very wrong.

Upon entering the house, he found Brier Rose in her crib smelling of urine and with chapped lips. The toddler’s grandmother was lying dead in the bathroom, her death thought to be caused by a medical issue.

“When I grabbed her, she just couldn’t hold her head up,” Waldo spoke of finding the toddler, adding that “She was just hugging on me and collapsed on me.”

Immediately, Waldo called 911 and when emergency personnel arrived, the baby was brought to the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital where she was treated for malnutrition and severe dehydration.

Brier Rose is now recovering and Waldo is hoping that she will be placed under his care or that of another family member’s. Things would have been a lot worse for the toddler if her mother hadn’t felt that something was wrong and urged her boyfriend to check on them.
