2800 block of Curry Parkway


On 1/24/21 at approximately 10:49 a.m. Madison Police responded to the 2800 block of Curry Parkway.  A citizen, not known to the youth, located a six year old and three year old lingering in the area.  The two young boys asked the citizen for help as they wanted to go home.  The citizen called police and Officers responded. The Officers took care of the frightened youth and gave them a ride back to the east side of town, to begin the investigation.  Neither the six year old or three year old knew their last name.  Officers were trying to figure out how these youth made it all the way over to the South side of Madison from the east side.  Metro was contacted and drivers did not recall giving a ride on a Sunday morning to such young youth traveling without an adult.  Hours went by and a relative learned the youth were not at home and contacted police, to which the investigation continues.  The youth were returned home.  We are appreciative of the South side resident who contact police sensing the youth needed help.
