Missing Person / File # 2019-14753
On May 19, 2019 just after 11:00 a.m., patrol members responded to a report of a missing 2-year-old boy. Patrol members, the Canine Unit and Police and Crisis Team (PACT) all responded. Additional resources such as Prince Albert Fire Dept., Prince Albert Mobile Crisis, Prince Albert Grand Council Search and Rescue as well as Search and Rescue North assisted police in the search. These agencies responded quickly and immediately began coordinating search efforts.
Shortly after the search began, the child was located inside a family friend’s residence safe and sound. After investigation it was determined the boy was never in danger.
The Prince Albert Police Service wants to thank their partnering agencies who assisted in the search. Their teamwork and expertise is a valuable asset to support the police service and community when responding to a high-risk missing person.
The Prince Albert Police Service has entered into partner MOUs with PAGC and Search and Rescue Saskatchewan Association of Volunteers (SARSAV), which guided our service in the deployment of resources to assist in the search. This is the first time in 2019 and since the signing of the MOUs that both agencies have been called upon to assist with a police investigation.
