(March 21, 2004) -- An LBReport.com reader emailed us to inquire about the PD helicopter circling in the general vicinity of Palo Verde Ave. and Willow St. in the early evening on March 20...making an announcement about a lost boy.
We're pleased to report what happened, via LBPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Paul LeBaron.
A 10 yr-old boy appears to have walked away from home. LBPD's helicopter ("Fox") circled over the area and made an announcement on its public address system. (Trust us, it's loud and clear).
Two minutes later, an LBPD officer on the ground spotted the young boy. He's OK.
