Missing Person At Risk Located By Nixle User

The Oakland Police Department wanted to share with the community the power of information sharing and community networking. The Berkeley Police Department requested assistance from OPD in locating a missing person at risk. They sent out a NIXLE Alert to their community members in the targeted area. Shortly after sending the NIXLE Alert, a subscriber, who was enjoying an evening walk received the alert and realized the missing man had just walked past her. She immediately contacted the Berkeley Police Department and the at risk man was found safe.
