My 2 year old grandson, WAS missing.
He had gone out the door when we were cooking, and the gate was left open. I thought I should check on him since I didn't see him in the front yard, thats when I saw the gate and just past that his three wheel bike in the middle of the road. I was struck with terror, because behind our house is an irrigation ditch with about 2 feet of water.
I didn't see our 2 dogs so I thought he may have followed them to the ditch and I look there first, (the momma, gramps, and niece) the others went looking in the opposite directions. I also thought he may have followed the dogs to the fields where the horses and cows were (he's been there with gramps) and I went that way too but didn't see him or the dogs.
As I was returning to the house, I went to the neighbors houses and asked if they saw him and they said no. As I was heading down another street, I saw my other niece running and yelled to see if they found him. She said yes. I was so scared still, because I didn't know if he was ok, or if other dogs had attacked him.
But he was ok, and by then there were others to help look for him. I was so grateful for their help.
I also thank GOD for keeping him safe. Please, give your kids and grandkids that extra hug, just because.
