CHICAGO (STMW) – A 13-year-old boy in the care of a Wisconsin social welfare agency who went missing while in the city for a family visit earlier Sunday on the Northwest Side has been found, police said.

Andre Lindsey was last seen at 11:30 a.m. Sunday in the 4800 block of North Western Avenue, according to a missing persons alert from Belmont Area detectives.

He left the custody of a caseworker from the Allendale Association of Bristol, Wis., after being brought to Chicago by the caseworker for a visit with family in the 1800 block of North Nagle, according to the alert. Police thought he may have attempted to return to the West Side where he has relatives.

Sunday night police said he has been located and was unharmed.

    Let the poor kid find his relatives. Blood is thicker than most social workers realize.

    there has to be a reason he is ‘in the care’ of the state, so those relatives may not be the best place for him to be. After all he is in the care of Wisconsin state and these would be relatives in Illinois. Blood may be thicker than water but it may not sustain life as well.



  • gee-reg
