GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A 4-year-old boy missing from the Cincinnati, Ohio area was located in Greenville on Thursday.

On July 9, Lt. Joe Macaluso with the Delhi Township Police Department said officers were called to a suspected heroin overdose on Pedretti Road in their jurisdiction where children were present at the time of the incident.

Within a day, Macaluso said authorities obtained an order to take emergency protective custody of the couple's five children. When they returned to the home, police said 4-year-old Jaeden McClure was missing.

Macaluso said it is unclear if Jaeden was in Cincinnati at the time of the overdose but in interviews with relatives, investigators learned he may be with extended family in South Carolina.

According to FOX 19 in Ohio, a judge ordered Jaeden turned over to social services after his mother's overdose.

The child's parents, 37-year-old Misty McClure and 56-year-old Jasper Pickett, were uncooperative with police, Macaluso said, and sent authorities to a bogus address in South Carolina amid the ongoing investigation.

On Thursday, Macaluso said Jaeden was located at a residence in the 1900 block of Woodruff Road around 10:15 a.m.

The extended family at the home in Greenville was completely cooperative, Macaluso said. No charges are pending against the relatives.

Pickett and Misty McClure were arrested and charged with interference of custody and booked into the Hamilton County Justice Center. Pickett has since bonded out.

Macaluso said Greenville Child Protective Services are working with Hamilton County Child Protective Services to bring Jaeden back to Cincinnati.

Deputies with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office confirmed units were on scene at Rocky Creek apartments in connection with the case. Sgt. Jimmy Bolt said deputies received a tip regarding a missing child from Ohio, who was found safe.

Bolt said a woman at the home was caring for Jaeden at the request of his father and had enrolled him in preschool.

The child was well cared for, deputies said.
