In case you wondered: Why police were at Westwood bus stops

April 8, 2014 at 8:26 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle police | 2 Comments

Thanks to those who texted us wondering what police were doing at the bus stops across the street from the south side of Westwood Village earlier this evening. Our crew talked with Metro Transit Police on the scene and they said they had been looking for what was believed to be a missing child – who has since been found. A woman and her 9-year-old daughter were on the bus home to West Seattle from downtown. The mom fell asleep on the bus, woke up at Westwood, and could not find her daughter. Seattle Police and Metro Transit PD responded; SPD found the girl at home, though they hadn’t figured out yet why the girl got off the bus without waking up mom.

  1. Oh, PHEW!

    Thanks for the update. And certainly very glad the kiddo is OK. Poor mom though!

  2. Maybe she was instructed by mom not to ever wake her up unless it is an emergency and since she knew how to go home, it wasn’t an emergency. 9 yr old logic.
