To the searchers of Nerstrand

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.

    After reading this and the article on KARE, I wondered if there would have been the same response in larger communities?
