The Brockville Police would like to thank the community for assisting in locating a missing 5 year old.
On the 26th of October 2014 at approximately 12:30 pm members of the Brockville Police were contacted regarding a missing 5 year old girl in the 400 block of Laurier Blvd. The child was believed to have left her residence earlier and family had spent about 45 minutes searching for her prior to calling police. Police arrived and immediately searched the house and adjacent vehicles. Police and firefighters then immediately began searching adjacent property and parks in an attempt to locate her. At that time the child was not located. Dozens of volunteers including family and friends assembled and began to search the area. A number of officers including a search coordinator were contacted to attend along with the Brockville Police K9 unit. A systematic search was organized including our K9 unit and a secondary search of the residence was conducted. At this time the child was located in a secluded hiding place, asleep. Officers were able to reunite her with her family at that time.
The Brockville Police would like to encourage all parents or guardians to discuss this scenario with their children. Clearly, Brockville is great City with people who care. The numerous telephone calls and offers of assistance were appreciated!
