Maryland State Police spent about two hours searching by land and air for a ten year old boy who ran away from his home in the town homes near Safeway. He was reportedly running toward Safeway at 9:46 p.m. on Monday evening. Approximately two hours later, the child was found a few blocks away on Wyndale Drive sitting on a curb.
Police, complimented with a K-9 unit, were searching playgrounds, dumpsters, and backyards. As residents called in possible sightings, a Maryland State Police helicopter swooped to the location to check from the air and light the area for police on the ground. Reports included a child running through a field on Crum Road, an individual hiding in a backyard on Highlander Boulevard.
The search area included Chapel Court, Highlander Boulevard, Glade Elementary School, and as far away as Heritage Farm Park.
