HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico police said the community really turned out to help find a missing child.

On Monday night, police received a call about a child that was reported missing.

An extensive search got underway with a Hanover bloodhound, airplane, fire drone and a massive turnout from the community.

β€œI have been on numerous missing juvenile calls and have never seen the outpouring from the community like this. We had citizens on bicycles, teams in vehicles, and some on foot,” a reporting officer said.

The child was found safe by one of the citizens who was helping in the search.

β€œThank you to our thoughtful and caring community - because of you all, a family is whole again,” Henrico police said on Twitter.
