PHOTO: UPDATED: The Liberty Science Center was in lock-down mode today after two children went missing, TLS has learned. The Jersey City attraction reportedly shut its doors about 3:30 PM after two children were reported by their parents missing.

Hundreds of families were unable to enter or exit while security personnel – including the State Police and others conducted a search of the large premises.

The children were located in Center over an hour later, a source tells TLS.

UPDATE: After reading the story, the Liberty Science Center made the following statement in the comments section:

“Guest safety is the top priority at Liberty Science Center. Though it may have felt longer, access to the building was restricted for 30 minutes on March 28 while we reunited the children with their families. We would like to share our sincere gratitude to all of the guests who patiently allowed us to follow the operating procedures designed to keep everyone safe.

When guests visit LSC with their children, we know they are entrusting us with their families’ care and we take that very seriously. Thank you again.”

  1. I have seen children being kept near their parents with a cute backpack shaped like an animal and it has a long tail that the parent holds. In circumstances like chol ha moed when children are brought to large public venues it might be a wise idea to own such a device. For children who are older, they need to be educated how to handle a situation when they realize they are not near their family. Otherwise we have circumstances like this where hundreds of families and employees are inconvenienced. Chag Samayach!

  2. Watch your kids people! When u go to store or anywhere else in public keep ur kids with you and don’t let them run around young wild and free! It’s dangerous and a big chillul Hashem!
