LOST CHILD FOUND QUICKLY IN GREENVILLE

A frightening situation was quickly resolved by the fast action of Greenville Police and the dispatcher.  Sergeant Scott Workman said police received a 911 call from a distressed parent Monday morning reporting a 4 year-old child was missing.  The police dispatcher recorded the call at 9:23 a.m. Monday and at 9:29 a.m., the child was found by police close to the home.  A family member had been watching the child outside and thought the child had gone indoors.  When she went indoors, however, the child was not there.  A quick search produced no sign of the child and the 911 call was placed.
