The Juhu police swung into action on Thursday afternoon after receiving information about a three-year-old boy going missing from Irla in Vile Parle (West). With the help of CCTV cameras and a good samaritan, they traced him within an hour.

According to the police, the three-year-old boy, identified as Dhanush, had come with his parents to Kishan Patel chawl in Irla to attend a religious ritual of a deceased relative. They are residents of Jogeshwari. Around 12.30pm, while his parents were busy speaking with their relatives, Dhanush started running around, and when his parents started to look for him he was nowhere to be found.

The family then rushed to Juhu police station, who as per SC guidelines, treated the missing incident as kidnapping. A team of sub inspector Yeshwant Chavan and constables Besarkar and Lavte checked CCTV cameras in the area, where the boy was seen running alone towards SV road from the Irla market road area. Around 1.45 pm, a good samaritan, Bhavesh Joshi, saw the boy running around alone, and helped the cops find him.
