Near Nerstrand, Minn., last evening, Sawyer Ruby Rose Hanson, 4, was playing in her front yard when she followed a cat into a field. She disappeared.
She was found this morning around 1:30.
That’s one story.
The other story? About 150 people organized by the Kenyon Fire Department dropped whatever they were doing to help look for her.
After being thanked for their work, one searcher had the appropriate Minnesota response.
“You bet,” he said.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
