14-74 UPDATE

UPDATE: The missing child (whose corrected age is 10 years old) has been found safe south of the school near Highland Avenue and Drew Street. A Clearwater Police officer and a couple who had seen his photograph on the news located him at about the same time walking along Drew Street. He said he had gotten lost after leaving school.

Clearwater Police are searching for a missing child late this afternoon. The child last was seen at the end of the school day at Sandy Lane Elementary, 1360 Sandy Lane. School was dismissed at 3:08 p.m.

The child's name is Moajed Awwad and he is 9 years old. He stands about 4 feet

5 inches tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a lime green shirt and blue shorts. He has a white backpack with black and green graphics on it.

Clearwater Police officers are circulating the area searching for the child.

Anyone who has seen Moajed should call police at 562-4242.

I will be headed to the school shortly.
