A massive search is underway in Nevada County at this hour for a 3 year old boy who wandered away from his home in the town of Washington at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon. Nevada County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Condon is at the Command Center in the town of Washington where the search is being organized.
“Last night we had some search and rescue volunteers out here with trained search dogs. We have some searchers on their ATVs and quads. We had approximately 31 searchers out here last night and today we’re expecting 39 searchers at least this morning with dogs and quads.”
A CHP Helicopter also took at a first light this morning to join in the search.
Deputy Condon describes the missing boy at 3 years old, 3 feet 4 inches tall about 55 to 60 pounds with light blonde hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing a white tee shirt blue jeans and white tennis shoes. He says they are also asking neighbors to look for the boy.
“The child, in the past, has been known to walk into people’s houses and their outbuildings such as tool sheds, barns, car ports, etc. and fall asleep, so we’re asking people that live in the town and surrounding areas to check their houses and their outbuildings for the missing child and if the missing child is found, call our office immediately.”
the boys home is within a quarter mile from the Yuba river but deputy Condon says searchers have been looking in all directions from the home.
