Missing Gainesville toddler OK
By Forrest Smith – WUFT-FM
It was a frantic couple of hours Tuesday night for family members and Gainesville police as they searched for a 2-year-old boy who had apparently vanished from a NE 28th Ave. home.
His Grandmother awoke from a nap to find Isaiah Washington missing. As a search was being prepared, Isaiah and his mom showed up.
She had come by to pick the youngster up from his visit with Grandma, found Grandma sleeping, and left quietly with the child, not wanting to awaken her. They ran some errands and visited with friends before returning. Police say there was no crime, so no charges, and that the case had a happy ending.
