Two children are home safely after nearly a five-hour search in Lakewood.
At approximately 11:00 PM last night, two children – approximately 12 years old – were reported missing from their homes in the Somerset Avenue area.
Multiple agencies began searching, including Lakewood Police, Chaveirim, Sheriff’s Office, Hatzolah, K9 and LCSW.
A command center was set up at the Lakewood High School lot, where dozens of volunteers and neighbors shared tips, maps and other information.
Shortly before 4:00 AM, the children were located by a Chaveirim member in a Shul in the Madison Avenue area, and transported back home.
Questions remain why and how the children got there.
What in the world
Kidnapped? Taken? Ran away?
As a Cheveirim member, I’m tired
Why were they in the shul???
Thank you to one unsung hero a true askin
For his dedication last night/early this am
Don’t worry he will be up for shachris
Why is it taking until 11 o’clock for them to report 10–year-olds missing. By now 9 o’clock if my 10 year old is not home it’s time to start worrying
Shout out to Moshe Haberstien for coordinating the search
Because they were 12 years old, not 10. And due to the eclipse, there was reason to believe that they were waiting up for it… MI kiamecha yisroel, dozens and dozens of people trying to find them…. Others saying tehillim non stop….chasdei Hashem
Thank you to the volunteers who stayed up half the night to locate OUR kinderlach!
