Late last week, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents, working with Tohono O’odham Police Department, found an 8-year-old child reported missing south of Sells by his mother.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, on Thursday at approximately 7:30 p.m., a concerned mother flagged down Border Patrol agents from the Three Points Station and told them that her young son had been missing for several hours.

An extensive nearly two hour search of the area was conducted by Border Patrol agents and officers from the Tohono O’odham Police Department. They were assisted by a helicopter supporting Border Patrol operations.

The helicopter spotted a person south of the woman’s residence and guided agents to the missing child, who was found in good health and returned to his mother.


  1. Any portrayal of the USBP as thugs should have been dispelled last night on 60 Minutes. Hardly a conservative organization, they showed just what the BP is up against and how they are handling it, which is professionally, compassionately and with every resource they have.

  2. Meanwhile, the unhinged leftists are attempting to portray the men & women of the USBP as jacked-booted thugs….

    Thank you Border Patrol Officers, and all law enforcement, for what you do.
