Sep. 10—A state agency responsible for investigating complaints against the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) has determined the department properly handled missing 5-year-old Oakley Carlson's case. Oakley's former foster parents and members of the Oakville community have been calling for an investigation into DCYF's handling of Oakley's case since Oakley was declared missing following a welfare check in December 2021. Oakley entered foster care when she was roughly 8 months old and returned to her biological parents' custody in November 2019 at the age of 3.
