Happy ending for lost boy

Posted: Updated:

For more than two years, Richard Bryon has been taking the same route.

"We'll make three trips during the night by here," said Bryon.

Each night, he makes sure the businesses on his list are safe.

Shortly after ten Wednesday night, he noticed something out of the ordinary at Billion Dodge on south Louise.

"As I walked past this brand new vehicle sitting in front of the show room, I saw a little face staring out at me."

A two-year-old boy who had been reported missing earlier in the evening was sitting in the car.

"I asked him what he was doing and at that time he said he wanted his Mommy," said Bryon.

The little boy had wandered from his family's apartment across the street. Bryon thinks he was likely attracted to the car lot's bright lights.

"Either that or he was attracted to a sporty muscle car. It was a Dodge Challenger RT and that's the vehicle I would have chosen."

After a quick call to his Sioux Merchant Patrol dispatch, Bryon said goodbye to his new friend.

"Police showed up within ten minutes, and I assume they took him right home to his mother."

And with that, Bryon went back to his job keeping people safe.

"I'm glad everything turned out fine for the little fella."
