MCFARLAND, CA, UNITED STATES, September 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When a child goes missing, it's crucial for law enforcement to be notified right away. It's also important to file a missing persons' report. There is not a specific amount of time that needs to go by before a missing persons' report is filed. According to Brian Wilson McFarland, when the police get notified right away, it gives police officers the best chance of following up on leads and preventing the loss of evidence. It is also within this time frame that information is the most accurate. As the hours roll by, the leads begin to disappear and the memories of witnesses start to fade.
According to the McFarland Police Department when an 11-year-old boy went missing on April 26, 2013, nearly two hours had gone by before the police were notified. Brian Wilson McFarland was one of the officers who responded to the call for service. Not only had valuable time elapsed since the boy had gone missing, but nightfall was quickly approaching.
