I live close enough to Oakland that I should have seen this in the news on Tuesday. It finally showed up in the paper today. We're all keeping a lookout.

Oh, poor kiddo. I hope they find him safe, well, and soon.

Damn. I live within walking distance of that store, which is on a really busy street-- it's really hard for me to believe that Hassani could disappear without someone taking notice.

Thanks for this. I'm going to post.

Please, please, please, tell me this child was not left in the car alone.

There are too many incidents where children are left alone, just for a second. Anything can happen in that second.

Praying this child is returned home safely.

We agree that missing children don't receive enough attention, particularly children of color.

FYI, we are adding Hassani Campbell to the list of children The Chevrolet Fireball Run Adventurally will be distributing posters for in the Race to Recover America's Missing Children.
