We hear from the Grand Forks woman who is now a hero to one local family, when she found a missing boy and called 911.

We hear from the Grand Forks woman who is now a hero to one local family, when she found a missing boy and called 911.

Monday afternoon we led our newscast with the story of a 7-year-old boy who was reported missing from the 400 block of Chestnut. It turns out, the boy, Bobby had gone to play at a classmates house without his mom's knowledge. It was the first time Bobby had ever been to this house.

Once we released information of his description in our newscast, it caught the attention of Lisa Hale.

Lisa Hale, 911 caller said, "5:00 came around and the news came, I was on the phone with my husband and I was looking like, oh, they are looking for a boy, with blonde hair and he's 7 years old, the same as Samuel, and I'm like, ok, I gotta let you go I think I gotta call somebody. So, ya, that's how I called 911."

Police say Lisa Hale's actions serve as a good reminder, how important it is that the public helps when a child goes missing. Lessons can be learned from this story. What to teach your children, in case they are ever lost or have wandered away from home.

We'll bring you tips on how to keep your kids safe in our GR8 Parenting Series Wednesday on WDAZ News at 5.
