Jeanne, call media relations at 617-343-4520, they are running point on this. 

Brett, people are getting confused about which child has been found. Tobias is still missing. Confirmed with BPD minutes ago. Hoping on my next flight. Please make sure if this pops up again it is confirmed with BPD and is the correct child. Thanks.

According to the BPD Tweets, the child missing from Bolster has been found: "UPDATE: Missing child from Bolster St has been found safe."


Tobias Chance IS STILL missing from the Centre Street area -- apparently since 7:30 this morning. I have better pictures of him, but they are stuck on my home computer.
