Channahon police find missing boy, 12, safe

A missing 12-year-old boy was found safe about four miles from his home Monday night.

Channahon police responded just before 6:20 p.m. Monday to the Leeland Hills subdivision near Community Park, in the area of McClintock Road and Johnathan Drive, for a report of a missing child, according to a news release from the department.

Several police agencies also came to the scene to assist in locating the boy. He was found about four miles from home, the release said.

Channahon Fire Protection District paramedics determined he was not injured, and the boy was immediately reunited with his family.

"The Channahon Police Department would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the first responders who assisted in the search, as well as those citizens who reported vital information that helped in locating the missing boy," police said.

A 13-year-old girl from Wilmington was also found safe last week, after she went missing from her home.
