West Feliciana Parish Sheriff J. Austin Daniel was the guest at the fourth-grade 4-H Club’s Feb. 24 meeting.
4-H Club Reporter Shelbie Welch, 10, of Bains Elementary in St. Francisville, welcomed the sheriff.
“One thing he talked about was one of his biggest achievements and trying to find a lost 2-year-old,” Shelbie said.
Shelbie said Daniel said he called in horses, four-wheelers, helicopters and three hound dogs for the search.
“After 10 hours, it was getting dark, but finally he looked down from the helicopter and there was the 2-year-old boy in a cow pasture covered in mud from head to toe,” she said.
Shelbie said the sheriff said the thing he was most proud of was when he handed the boy to his father.
