I would like to take this time to thank everyone who helped me find my son.

Our son, six-year- old Dillon Worrell was missing on September 15 for almost two hours. Dillon is autistic and he wandered off while playing with his sister. We live on Waynedale Blvd.

Everyone in our area stopped what they were doing and helped search for Dillon. We found him at a neighbor’s playing on a trampoline. We have only lived here for six months and I am proud to be part of this community. Everyone here has made me and my family feel safe and right at home.

Again, I would like to thank everyone in our neighborhood and the Fort Wayne Police Department for all your help.
