Missing Boy Found
Good News from the Grayville Police Department; as that ten year old missing boy has been found, fine and unharmed.
Grayville Chief of Police Roy Mann reported early Friday, the boy had been missing since Thursday afternoon. The child was last seen heading north on the Old State Road, about a mile north of Grayville.
Grayville Police along with Edwards County Sheriff’s Department searched the area, but were unsuccessful. At that point, Illinois State Police, White County Sheriff’s Department, Hamilton County Emergency Services, and the Little Wabash Fire Protection District were called out to assist. Hamilton County brought a drone equipped with infrared to fly over the area.
The search started around 11 and continued into the early morning hours of today (fri).
Chief Mann alerted local media early Friday to the missing child and then upon successfully locating the child, quickly got the word out the child had been found.
The boy was located around 6 this morning, at his grandmother’s home in Albion. The boy was fine and unharmed. Apparently he made it to Albion on his own.
Chief Mann said, “I first want to say I am very thankful this situation ended the way it did. Everyone who assisted did an outstanding job in attempts to locate and find the boy. I can’t thank everyone who helped enough. Thank you to Edwards and White County Sheriff’s Departments, Hamilton County Emergency Service, Illinois State Police, Little Wabash Fire Department and Edwards County Ambulance Service for all the dedicated and hard work. Lastly, I want to thank God for bringing him home safe.
Again, the missing Grayville boy has been located at his grandmother’s in Albion. It goes without saying the young man most likely is in line for a “Good talking to.”
