Just after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday Police received a report of two children who may have entered a storm drain near East Avenue G and Burgess. Officers learned that a resident had spotted the children, around 6 and 3-years-of-age, standing near the drain one moment and then go missing. Personnel from the City’s Water Department also responded and aided Officers by cutting several bars off the drain’s cover. Two Officers crawled nearly 40 yards in an attempt to locate the children; however, there were no signs of disturbance in the pipe’s sediment. A remote control camera was also utilized. The search lasted over two hours. No children were located and there were no reports of missing children in the area. Following the search, both Officers noted their soiled uniforms were well worth the outcome and they were happy no children were harmed during the reported incident.
