Please let me know if I should not have posted this - you just never know who might see him going about their day

They found him.

It was also on Comcast (all channels) last night. Is that new?

It would have been better if they had the pic on the TV alter, but they found him up in NE DC anyway.

Glad that he is home safe.

It is great that you posted this on City-Data. Since there are a whole lot of people on here from NoVA, this seems like the perfect place to get the word out.

I wonder if local news websites (like washington post or even town newspapers) post the amber alerts on their sites when one occurs... The more people that hear, the better.

He was found directly because of the Amber Alert! The woman who took him brought him to a home in DC. One of the people there recognized the boy's shirt from the Amber Alert description, at which point she ran away and he flagged down a police officer.
