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.

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.
