Woman tells of how she found missing boy


Here's a heartwarming story on this cold morning: KLRT has a report on the woman who found a missing 9-year-old boy who apparently spent a frigid night on the streets of Little Rock on Monday before being found safe on Tuesday afternoon. 

Props to Carrie Young, who discovered Terrell Holloway huddling in some bushes outside her office at 1901 Broadway yesterday afternoon. Holloway had gone missing from his home on Spring Street around 6 p.m. Monday. 

Young tells KLRT that on Tuesday afternoon, she and a coworker kept hearing a knocking on the outside of the building, and she discovered the boy when she went to investigate. Young reportedly brought the boy inside and fed him crackers while they waited on police. From the story:

Young says she recognized Terrell from the news where he'd been reported missing since Monday night. His father says he left home, possibly worried about getting in trouble at home after getting in trouble at school. Young says she'd worried about the child overnight and never expected he'd be right outside her window.

"I said Terrell Holloway, boy did you know I've been praying for you all night long," she adds. "We were just hugging and he wanted to know if he could stay with us."
