Someone @ or nearby the school must have saw something.

I just hope he is found quickly and safe.

Thankfully, the media (eg CBS) are now reporting that the little boy has been found and is safe.

.... And I see that the PW article has been updated, too. :-)

(I do wish that this forum had an "Edit" option!)

Just wanted to say how proud I am of my community. This is a parent’s worst nightmare. I just cannot imagine the stress they must have gone through. Thankfully he was found and it wasn’t foul play, but a child was vulnerable and the community and Police really stepped up to find this lost boy. I saw Facebook posts, Nextdoor announcements…. Anyway, it really takes a village. Great job everyone.
