A group of “junior detectives” are being honored by a California police department after helping find a missing elderly woman. 

The Roseville Police Department was searching for a 97-year-old woman late last month and numerous residents joined in to help the effort, including five kids. It was those children that ended up finding her.

“As it turns out, they were the team to locate the missing 97-year-old,” Roseville police wrote on its Facebook page. “Our surprised dispatchers took the initial call from this team of junior detectives, which helped connect officers to the missing person.”

Officers also said the kids were a great example of the community coming together “to lend a helping hand.”

“This proves a great point, age is just a number and anyone can help out in a time of need,” they added.
