A group of California children helped the police in finding a 97-year-old woman who went missing in California on Monday. The woman reportedly has dementia. This proves that age is just a number, and anyone can help anybody in a time of need.
Junior Detectives Helping Police
On Monday, i.e., October 7, 2019, a 97-year-old Glenneta Belford, who is suffering from Dementia and is mostly non-verbal, went missing. She has been known to hide or hunker down in a location. The Roseville Police Department asked for the public’s help in locating her.
10-year-old Logan Hultman and his friends Makenna Rogers and Hope Claiborne heard the police in a helicopter asking for help looking for the missing woman while they were playing. They then decided to find the woman. So, they grabbed Hope’s younger brother and hoped on to their bikes. They started searching for the park and the area around Cooley Middle School. During this time, one of the friends, Logan, fell off his bike, and the kids headed their homes to get him patched up. They had their dinner and told Logan’s mother, Alyssa Hultman, about their mission.
The determined children didn’t leave their mission halfway; they started searching again. They searched the neighborhood area of the Senior Centre from where the older woman went missing. Although, They saw a woman walking around and consulted a photo before calling up the police. That’s how the kids became junior detectives.
What Do Alyssa Hultman Have To Say About The Incident
Alyssa Hultman, the mother of Logan Hultman, felt very proud of all the kids. She is pleased about the kids taking it upon themselves to help. She said that they chose a group to go and help someone and think that it is cold. Alyssa said, “It shows a lot of their character and the type of people that they are.”
The police are overwhelmed by looking at the number of people that came forward to help to find the poor older woman. They were so proud of the junior detectives who located her. In a statement on Facebook, the police said, “This proves a great point, age is just a number, and anyone can help out in a time of need.”
