Community comes together to support Ohio County toddler

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

A benefit ride is happening Saturday for Frankee, the Ohio County toddler who swallowed a powerful ingredient used to make meth last month.

Organizers just spoke with family members Thursday night and say that Frankee is out of the hospital and in foster care.

Everything's scheduled to start tomorrow around 9 a.m. with the bike registration.

Participants and supporters will meet at Maloney's on Highland Pointe Drive in Owensboro.

The motorcycle ride isn't the only event that's been organized to support Frankee.

There's also going to be a silent auction, bike show, and more.

Live music begins around 3 p.m. with No Hurry and the Josh Merritt Band.

T-shirts will also be available at the benefit.

All money raised tomorrow will help pay for Frankee's medical care.

A trust fund in her name has also been set up at U.S. Banks in Owensboro.

Last month, Frankee swallowed sulfuric acid, which is also known as liquid fire.

Ohio County authorities arrested her mother, Rachael Arroyo and her boyfriend, Jared McStoots.

Both are facing several charges in the case.

The Facebook page called "Frankee's Voice" lets the community show its support for the toddler as she recovers.
