Family of Lost Child Located


With the public’s help, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was able to locate the family of Manuel, a five-year-old male child who had been found by a passing motorist in the area of W. Ken Caryl Ave and S. Kendall Blvd at 2:45 a.m. Within one hour of asking the public’s help this morning, we were able to identify Manuel’s family and locate his residence, more than a mile from where he was found.

A classmate and teacher of Manuel’s recognized him from local news stories and social media. Simultaneously, an adult family member who lives with Manuel called the Sheriff’s Office. While she was searching the neighborhood for him this morning, a worker informed her he had seen Manuel on social media.

The investigation into why Manuel wandered from his home overnight continues, but he has been re-united with his family and we will not be filing criminal charges.
