26-year-old Brandon Blouin was in Deschutes County Circuit Court yesterday indicted on 6 charges including child abandonment, after he left 1-year old Bradley Thomas out in the woods alone on May 10th. A 6-hour search led to finding the boy who was face down in the dirt. He has since been placed in state custody. Blouin and the baby’s mother had taken the toddler from his legal guardian, his grandmother in West Virginia. Blouin will be back in court on June 11th to enter a plea.
