Child Who Wandered From School, Found by Motorist

Sully Police District – A six-year-old boy was safely reunited with his family after he apparently wandered away from school on Tuesday, June 7, around 11:30 a.m. A motorist initially saw the little boy walking near Billingsgate Lane and Basingstoke Loop in Centreville. The motorist saw the same little boy, a short time later, near the intersection of Stone Road and Braddock Road. Concerned for the child’s safety, the motorist stopped and spoke to the child and then called police. Officers responded, notified the school, obtained the child’s address and took him home. Fortunately, the child was not injured. We are thankful for the concerned motorist who found and reported the situation to us.

This incident is currently under investigation by Fairfax County Public Schools.
