Kendall County Sheriff tells how smartphone app led to locating runaways

Kendall County Sheriff Dwight Baird touted his office’s use of social media to county officials Tuesday, June 15, citing how someone used the sheriff’s office’s app to locate two runaway girls late last month.

Baird told the county board the runaways were found in approximately an hour after the Sheriff’s Office advised the public of the situation through its smartphone app on May 26.

“Somebody who was on it was able to identify the girl,” Baird said.

The local 12-year-old runaway was located with another girl who was reported missing to the Aurora Police Department.

“We were able to recover them, get Aurora here and successfully reunite the juveniles,” Baird said.
