MOLINE ACRES, MO (KTVI) – A Moline Acres boy missing for more than 16 hours is found safe at a friend’s house. Tre-Vun`s mother and father were reunited with him around 8:30 Friday morning at the Moline Acres police department.
There were plenty of hugs and tears.
Here’s what we know about what happened.
Tre-Vun was at the Lewis and Clark branch library in Moline Acres with some friend’s yesterday afternoon. His brother was the last person to see him around four in the afternoon but Tre-Vun never came home last night. That’s when his family got worried and started looking for him.
When they couldn’t find him they called Moline Acres Police a little before two Friday morning.
Eventually, a search and rescue team with canines from the Eureka Fire Protection District was called in. As the team was searching, police got a tip that Tre-Vun had left the library with two friends Thursday evening.
Police found out through some other kids where Tre-Vun`s friends lived and they found him at the home of one of those friends.
Tre-Vun had slept over and his parents didn’t know.
Investigators say this basically boiled down to a case of bad communication about where Tre-Vun was last night.
Fortunately, there was a happy ending. No charges of any kind are pending.
