Boy lost his family

A three year old little boy lost his family on 13 December.  Or I suppose you could say that a three year old boy went missing on 13 December. 

However, he wasn’t ‘lost’.  He just wasn’t ‘found’

The little boy was reported missing by his parents in one town.  He was found wandering the streets in another town.  It took nearly a month and a news24 to re-unite the boy with his parents.

How on earth is it possible that the boy was not reported missing at all the police stations?  That he was not reported as ‘found’ at all the police stations?

Imagine the sadness, worry and stress his parents went through over the Christmas season.  Imagine his longing for his mother’s arms.

Is not proper that.

  2. A two year old kid here wandered out at night and froze to death just a day or two ago. That just tore me up when I read the headline.

  3. It took the US years and tons of red tape to get the AMBER Alert program in place. (Named after a child who was abducted.)

    “The AMBER Alert Program is a voluntary partnership between law-enforcement agencies, broadcasters, transportation agencies, and the wireless industry, to activate an urgent bulletin in the most serious child-abduction cases. The goal of an AMBER Alert is to instantly galvanize the entire community to assist in the search for and the safe recovery of the child.” (This from amberalert.gov.)

    It has been really successful, but took a lot of people a lot of energy and time to make it happen.

    Seems like it would have been a no-brainer.

  9. OMG! As a mom I dread hearing stories like this. A long while back I posted of my experience of happening upon a wee tike wandering our neighborhood, in the pitch blackness of early dawn, in near freezing temps! It is an experience that has never entirely left me and still haunts me, eventhough it was not my own child.

    I am so thankful this child was, eventually, reunited with his family.

    Congrats to a fellow nominee, courtesy of Angel!

    I cannot even fathom the amount of pain that poor child must have went through. Thank God it turned out all right.

    Ahh yes.. I was going to mention the Amber Alert.
    It has great success stories behind it.
    However, it is not used for “lost” children. It is for abducted children and even at that they still need a person and/or vehicle description to put out the notice.
    We (as in any country/continent/state) need an alert for missing children in general so EVERYONE can be on the lookout for them too!
