DELAYED 5 PM: Missing Child (Walmart)


Posted on

Today during the 5 PM hour Walmart received a phone call from a parent advising they had accidentally left their 4-year-old at the store, and were returning back to the store to retrieve him. No caller-ID information was captured. Walmart employees began a CODE ADAM routine where associates block the exits and begin a search for the child. Police canvassed the parking lot and neighboring businesses.

The call recording continued into the 6 PM hour:

… Officers suddenly asked for a report number that was assigned to the call and then cleared to handle another incident occurring at Walmart. Based on the fact that nothing more was said and no alerts were sent to media from LHCPD, we believe the child to have been reunited with their parent(s).
