UPDATE: Lost boy ‘back where he belongs’: RCMP

Nothing criminal in case of toddler found in Promontory area early Monday, says Chilliwack RCMP.

A lost little boy in the Promontory area is “back where he belongs” with his father, Chilliwack RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck reported Monday.

She said the boy was only two doors away from his home, not wandering the neighbourhood.

“It’s not criminal in any way,” she said about the incident. “Everybody is happy and healthy.”

But police officers going door-to-door in the Promontory area looking for the boy’s home quickly became the topic of social media.

Police media liaison officers were not available immediately to confirm the reports, but an area resident called The Progress with a description of the police officers who came to her door.

She said the boy “seemed very happy” in the hands of police officers who entertained him while others knocked on residents’ doors.
