I had a life changing experience Saturday night. It’s a long story but suffice to say I am so glad I live in Baker County and we have a fantastic set of deputies and firemen working here.
My 4-year-old wandered off from my family while I was gone to retrieve my older child at the end of the Christmas Parade. From the time I learned he was missing till he was found seemed like forever, but it was only 13 minutes. A myriad of emotions washed over me in that time frame — what was he wearing; how do I tell his dad?
I was trying to think of where he might have gone. Was he trying to go to the fire station or was he hungry and went to the food booths? Had someone taken him and was he in one of the hundreds of cars trying to leave the area or would someone not see him in the dark and run over him?
