It’s a Miracle! Bozeman Police Act Quick to Find Missing Boy
Thanks to tips from residents in Bozeman, the Bozeman Police Department has located a child that was reported missing on the afternoon of Wednesday, June 8.
Shortly after the Bozeman Police Department reported the boy missing, residents sprung into action to help find 16-year-old Levi Hill. According to a press release from the Bozeman Police Department, Hill was reported missing on Wednesday afternoon.
With help from the public, law enforcement was able to locate Hill and return him home safely. Because the boy is mentally delayed, according to the Bozeman Police Department, they were concerned that Hill may run into traffic or away from people trying to stop him.
When a child is reported missing, time is of the essence. Thankfully, it didn't take long for law enforcement to locate Hill.
According to a statement from Bozeman Police Sergeant Shawn Toresdahl, Hill was located at approximately 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday near Kirk Park on N. 20th Ave. in Bozeman.
The Bozeman Police Department would like to thank the public for providing information that helped locate Hill less than two hours after he was reported missing. The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, Bozeman Fire, AMR, and search & rescue volunteers also assisted in the search.
The fact that Hill was located in such a short time is a great reminder of how fortunate we are to live in a small community. When residents are called upon to help, they don't hesitate to take action. Thankfully, this story has a happy ending. We are so glad that Levi Hill is home safe.
