6-Year Old Boy Found Safe by Winnipeg Police

Thursday, September 28, 2023 - A quick and extensive search by Winnipeg Police lead to the discovery of a child reported missing.

Police say they were alerted to a missing 6-year-old boy that had run off on Tuesday September 26, in the 600 block of Oakenwald Avenue.

Numerous police resources were dispatched, including West District General Patrol, River Patrol, Cadets and the Drone Unit.

An extensive search was initiated throughout a large area which included the riverbank as the child had a known attraction to water. Members of the Winnipeg Police Service River Patrol located the child in the water near the 600 block of South Drive. A River Patrol officer entered the water and rescued the child, who appeared to be a moment away from being submerged.

The child was safely returned to his caregivers.
