Rockford Scanner fan Karyn Bambrick: ” I would like to personally like to thank the Winnebago county Sheriff’s Department for the quick recovery and saving a child very close to me on Springfield Rd. He’s autistic, sneaky, and likes to run. I’m really shaky now but at least he’s home and safe and sound. Many thanks to the States Attorney for rescuing him off the road too. I couldn’t have gotten through this without you.
My friend’s autistic son ran out of my house to play without my knowledge. He never ran out my back door as it is sealed up and he never ran out the front door as I was always there watching the door. He was found safe by the States attorney and the police and I flagged each other down as i was looking for him. Hes home safe now and would like to remind each parent with young children that this can happen to ANYONE!!! He’s doing a lot better than I am”
