I don’t find news so much as it finds me. Case in point: Yesterday my apartment complex was fairly swarming with cops, FBI, K-9 dogs.
When the first few officers showed up, in plain clothes, and I saw an obviously distraught young mom, I thought, “Hmmm, custody case, no real news here.”
I was mistaken.
When the FBI and dogs showed up, I knew this was something more. Nosy journalista that I am, I asked what’s going on. Terse response was to call Avon police.
News tip: Late Saturday evening Avon police got a call about two missing girls. A 12-year-old and the 2-year-old toddler she was baby-sitting.
So I snapped a few (mostly crappy) photos, hauled off to work and told reporter Evan Goodenow and photog Anna Norris at the Chronicle-Telegram about what was happening. Here’s the story.
And now here are some pix from my little neighborhood.
