A missing 12 year old Lancaster City boy was found safe Tuesday evening. The parents of 12 year old Peter John Dooley, contacted Lancaster City Police at about 4:10 pm to report their child was missing. The boy was last seen by the staff at the DASH program in the 600 block of Rockland Street at about 2:15 pm. He reportedly ran away from the staff.
The child lives in the the first block of Hager Street but never returned to his home. Police say that the juvenile fled the school during dismissal and was last seen running east on Rockland Street.
Because the child has developmental issues there was fear that he may not know how to get back to his home.
The boy was found safe and unharmed at about 8:15 pm and returned to his parents.
