Boy Found

Posted on 29th June 2010 at 07:44

It’s speculated that ten year-old Ian Torres-Peterson of Vernonia may have been affected by a fever as he sleep-walked out of his home, sparking a search of more than five hours yesterday morning. Torres-Peterson’s family reported him as missing at about 2 am, and after the area’s Reverse 911 system was activated around 3 am, about 150 volunteers showed up to help look for the boy. The command post was set up near the Vernonia Museum, with people checking all around the town. At about 7 am, a TV crew spotted a boy matching Torres-Peterson’s description coming out of the woods; the boy then ran up to a police car that was parked in the area. Torres-Peterson was checked out at the scene, and was returned to his family. Family members are thanking the community for its huge response in working to find the boy.
