How This Group of Kids Tracked Down a Missing Woman With Dementia
A group of best friends turned into junior detectives when police outside Sacramento, California, asked for help locating a missing 97-year-old woman.
Just call them the bicycle brigade!
Logan, Hope, her brother Kash, and McKenna banded together to find the woman, taking to the streets on their bikes, they told Inside Edition.
They rode up and down the roads, over hills and through parks. As they were combing the neighborhood, they happened to spot her.
The woman told them to go away, they said, but they weren't deterred, alerting others to their discovery.
Local cops were so proud of the kids, they praised them on social media.
“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.”
Hope and Kash's father, Daniel, said he couldn't believe it.
"I doubted them [when they told me they were going to go find her]," Daniel said. "I was like, 'Yeah, OK, go have fun, be safe on your bikes,' and they were like, 'No Dad, seriously, we are gonna find her, we're gonna get our friends, we're gonna find her.'"
And find her they did.
"An hour later, they come running in screaming, 'We found her, we found her!' I was like, 'You gotta be kidding.'"
Nice job, kids.
