Border Patrol Assist in Search for Lost Child

LAREDO, Texas - As an update to the yesterday's case involving a lost child in South Laredo. The mother and child were unified in Mexico. A collaborative effort between the Border Patrol and the Mexican Consulate led to this positive outcome.

On the evening of Jan. 23, an enforcement action on Malinche Avenue led to the apprehension of multiple illegal aliens in the stash house. Investigative efforts revealed a juvenile in the group was the child that had been separated from her mother.

This is a shining example of the extraordinary dedication of Border Patrol agents and their willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty.
