NORTH BLOOMFIELD - 2-year old Rainn Peterson is right where she should be, napping on a bed at her
great-grandparents' home.

"She is still on oral antibiotics but doing so much better," her great-grandmother, Dora Mae Peterson told Fox 8 Monday.  "She is back fighting with her brothers."

Rainn Peterson got out of her great-grandparents home Oct 2.  After a massive search that lasted close to 48 hours, the toddler was found, not far from her great-grandparents home.

"She had an infection and some scratches," Dora Mae said.

During an interview at their home Monday, Dora Mae added that thanks to friends they now have motion detectors on all the doors.

Trumbull County Sheriff Tom Altiere said his detectives are still trying to figure out how the toddler got out of the house.

Something her great-grandmother would also like to find out.

"She couldn't open the door, she  tried," Dora Mae said.

Family members say they are very thankful for all the support they have received from the community.
