Binghamton Police Dog Finds Missing Boy

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A police dog named Lilo helped locate a Binghamton boy who had been reported missing.

Authorities say officers started a search for the 13-year-old boy with Down Syndrome just before 6:30 Wednesday evening.

The initial search throughout the Legacy Bay apartment complex off Ely Park Boulevard was unsuccessful.

Dogs from the Binghamton and Johnson City police departments were deployed to assist searchers.

City police officer Kevin Brown conducted a track with Lilo and found the boy in a creek bed on the southeast side of Ely Park Golf Course.

The boy was reported to be in good health when he was returned to his parents.

The child was found about two hours after police began searching for him.

Lilo is a two-and-a-half-year-old female Belgian Malinois.
