Police search near Elk Grove Boulevard for man, child who ran away Monday

The Elk Grove Police Department is looking for a man and a child who disappeared Monday under suspicious activity.

Missing is a Latino man in his 20s who stands about 5-feet-5 to 5-feet-6 inches tall was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt and a red or orange baseball hat. He was last seen running southbound on the trail adjacent to Red Fox Way and St. Simons Court with a Caucasian boy dressed in a yellow T-shirt. The relationship between the two was not known.

KCRA reported a witness called 911 after seeing the man and boy together near a bush off the trail. When the man realized the witness was looking at him, he reportedly grabbed the boy and ran.

Despite what police described as an “extensive search and canvas of the area,” the missing people remained unfound as of Tuesday morning. Police are asking anyone with information about their disappearance to call 916-714-5115.
