MISSING CHILD LOCATED UNHARMED
On Thursday, March 21, 2019 at approximately 12:15 p.m. the Swatara Police were dispatched to the 8400 block of Hamilton Street for a missing four year old child. Officers from Swatara Township, Lower Paxton Township, Hummelstown Borough and Lower Swatara Township initiated an organized search and located the child approximately twenty minutes after the initial dispatch. The child was cold, wet and scared when located by officers but sustained no physical injuries while missing from the residence. It was learned that the family dog had gained access through a door and left the residence after which the child apparently followed the dog. The Swatara Township Police thank our mutual aid police departments and the Dauphin County 911 center for their assistance in the successful recovery of this child.
