Update, noon Monday:
A 3-year-old child who went missing from the New Orleans area with his grandfather Sunday was found at a convenience store in Livingston Parish, Louisiana State Police said.
Shortly after 6 a.m. Monday, a trooper saw the vehicle, a tan 2007 Cadillac DTS, at a convenience store on Satsuma Road near Interstate 12, State Police said in a news release. The vehicle was unoccupied, so the trooper entered the building to search for Roshei Selmon, 3, and his grandfather, Roland Williams, 45.
The trooper found the pair in the restroom area. Both were unharmed and in good condition, State Police said. They were released to family members to return home.
“Far too often law enforcement and other public safety agencies are called to respond to tragic events,” State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson said in a news release. “However, in this darkness, we never stop searching for the light of hope. The successful recovery of this young child and his grandfather are our beacon today. Working together with our public safety partners for positive resolutions are why we do what we do.”
Update, 7:30 a.m. Monday:
State Police canceled a missing child alert for 3-year-old Roshei Salmon, found safe early Monday.
The child’s grandfather, 45-year-old Roland Williams, was also found safe, State Police said.
Louisiana State Police are looking for a 3-year-old child who went missing Sunday, along with his grandfather.
State Police issued a Level II Endangered/Missing Child Media Advisory early Monday.
Roshei Salmon, 3, and his grandfather, Roland Williams, 45, were traveling in a beige or tan 2007 Cadillac DTS four-door vehicle, which was last seen around 3 a.m. Monday in the Hammond area.
Williams’ family said that he suffers from a medical condition, which impairs his judgment, State Police said.
Roshei Salmon has black hair and brown eyes. He weighs around 40 pounds. He was last seen wearing a green and white shirt, khaki shorts and Spider Man slippers, State Police said.
Williams has black hair and brown eyes. He is around 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue or dark-colored shorts and blue shoes.
