March 19th, 2010 4 year old boy missing in Alread woods.

From the desk of Sheriff Scott Bradley:


On Friday March 19th, 2010, The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a missing child who had wandered off from the woods near his home in the Alread area of Van Buren County.  Fire, Rescue and the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office responded to search for the missing child.  The father, Kenneth Collins of 8368 State Highway 16 West, reported that he and his children were putting up a dear stand near his residence when he noticed his 4 year old had wondered off.  Search dogs from Arkansas Department of Corrections-Calico Rock, Van Buren County Air Patrol and a Search Helicopter from Baxter County were called to assist in the search. At approximately 7:19 PM, Deputy Macy Brown reported to the sheriff’s office that Alread Fire Department first responder had found the missing child.  Wet from the waist down, the child was returned to his father unharmed.


Sheriff Bradley would like to personally thank all agencies and people involved who responded to help with the search

Sheriff Scott Bradley
