SOUTHINGTON – The state’s Department of Children and Families has been made notified after a Silver Alert was issued early Friday for a young child from Southington.

State police around 12:17 a.m. asked the public to be on the lookout for 7-year-old Eve Hoeger, who had been reported missing since sometime Friday. The child, who will turn 8 later this month, was believed to possibly be with her mother, 32-year-old Ashley Hoeger, in a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta.

A little more than nine hours after the Silver Alert was issued, state police canceled the alert and said the incident had been resolved. 

In the afternoon hours Friday, Southington police Lt. Keith Egan said “No arrest is being made at this time.”

Egan added that a referral was made to the state’s Department of Children and Families at the discretion of an officer.

No additional information has been released about the circumstances surrounding the child being reported as missing.
