Reader report: Child found in North Delridge

5 PM: Just got a phone call from a reader who says her 120 bus to downtown has a possibly lost child on board, a toddler-age boy who was on the sidewalk on the north end of Delridge. The driver brought the child on board and police apparently will meet them downtown. If you know of someone looking for a child in that area, be sure they call 911.

8:24 PM: Commenter and e-mail have confirmed that this is resolved, adding: “Child and family are fine. Thanks to SPD and and Metro for resolving this so quickly.”

    Thank goodness for the aware and kind driver to pick up the child and call the police. I hope that the parent(s) are found and that this is just an unfortunate, rare accident rather than negligent parenting.

    Two hours and nobody’s missing their toddler?  If that’s true, I feel very sorry for that kid.

      Val – this likely is resolved but I meant to add, we wouldn’t probably be able to find out given it’s Friday night. (And downtown is a different precinct so we wouldn’t have seen/heard anything about a response on that side.) But I opted to post this anyway just in case it might help. – TR

    WSB would you update when you know that this is resolved? I hope the family is reunited quickly!

      I’m sorry, I just updated my comment explaining that it’s unlikely I’ll be able to find anything out … downtown police are in a different precinct/sector outside everything we monitor … I posted knowing that, just in the small chance it might have helped someone. If anyone reading this knows something about the incident but doesn’t want to comment, please e-mail us at just to let us know …
