    I saw a little boy who appeared to be around that age wearing a red shirt walking by himself in the direction of the boy and girls club about 9:30 a.m.
    It was cars approaching each intersection and I felt uneasy after I passed over and didn’t let him run across the street. In my rear view mirror I did see the man driving the pick up truck let him cross the street before he drove through the stop sign.
    If this is the same little boy and even if it wasn’t him I thank god the child was found okay!!!!

    P.S. Gut feelings are real!
