A team of kids from Roseville, California are being hailed as ‘junior detectives’ for rescuing a 97-year-old woman who went missing from her home.


Glenneta Belford, is non-verbal and has dementia. The Roseville Police Department posted about it on social media in hopes that the community members would be able to spot her.


But Belford was found by none other than the five kids who were searching for her on their bikes after they came to know of her disappearance. They finally found her and informed the police department and reported her location.


“As it turns out, they were the team to locate the missing 97-year-old,” wrote the Roseville Police Department Facebook page. “Our surprised dispatchers took the initial call from this team of junior detectives which helped connect officers to the missing person.

The post further said, “This is a great example of our exceptional community coming together to lend a helping hand. This proves a great point, age is just a number and anyone can help out in a time of need.”
