LOWELL, Mass. (WHDH) – The Lowell Police Department is launching a search for a missing 3-year-old boy in the Pawtucketville neighborhood.
The boy, identified only as Harry, was last seen walking down Freda Lane in gray trousers with white stripes and a long-sleeved maroon shirt. The call to police was received around 9:30 a.m
The boy was dropped off at his babysitter’s house on Freda Lane at 7.15am. According to police, he was spotted at 9:15 a.m. by a neighbor playing in the backyard.
Community members should expect an additional police presence in the city’s outer Pawtucketville area during the search. The police response includes State Police and State Police Airwing, Dracut, Tyngsborough and UMass Lowell Police, as well as several K-9 units and a dive team.
“We will search as long as we can and need to,” said Lowell Police Department interim superintendent Barry Golner said Lowell Police Department interim superintendent Barry Golner.
Police said over 150 officers are involved in the search and they don’t believe foul play was involved, saying the boy ran off.
“Right now it’s going to be an extensive search,” Golner said. “We have a huge forest where the child could be. There are also huge bodies of water in the forest. So we have to make sure we have enough assets and enough staff to disperse them and relieve them if something gets prolonged.”
Anyone with information about the situation is urged to call 911 or the Lowell Police at 978-937-3200.
