Missing 5-Year-Old Boy Found Asleep On Bus

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The parents of Kayrim Muhammad were all smiles when they walked out of the police station with their little boy after several hours of searching for him.

The 5-year-old was reported missing 7 p.m. Monday night, last seen at around 5:30 p.m. at a park with a daycare run by his grandmother.

Police went door-to-door looking for Kayrim and while canvassing the neighborhood, they say a 10-year-old told them he saw Kayrim being dragged off by a man.

The search intensified and an Amber Alert was put out at around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The grandmother told police she usually drives the children home, but Lt. John Walker with the Philadelphia Police Department, says as they continued interviews with the grandmother, they learned from her there was another transportation company used by the day care but she insisted the boy never took that bus.

“So, we sent detectives up to the bus yard up in Feltonville and low and behold the child was found on the school bus sleeping, unharmed and obviously dazed and confused,” Walker said.

Police say they found Kayrim at around 3 a.m., shortly after the Amber Alert was issued. Police say there are some loose ends to tie up. However, after an all night search, authorities say it is too early to talk about the possibility of any charges.

    Hate is not born in the heart. It can only be invited in as a guest. If it overstays its welcome, you may not have ever asked it to leave. ~Zenobia Porter~

    @ Tax-Payer,Pat and truth be told.. All three of you are ignorant. Things in life happen. That is what makes life life. But it is your type that makes people ignorant and breed racism and hate. We have criminals and ignorance in every race..Look in your own mirrors before you look in others.

    THANK GOD THE CHILD WAS FOUND SAFE AND UNHARMED!! HOWEVER, the Bus Driver and/or the Bus Attendant should have done a walk through to make sure that ALL of the children were off of the bus. And for all those who are making evil and malicious comments, ask yourself this question: What would you do if it were YOUR child this happened to? Would you like for the same comments you are making be made about YOU? Points to Ponder!!

      So quick to blame the bus driver when the “GOOD BOY” was the actual cause of all this.

      The kind to blame others rather than accept fault.

      1. New Orleans Saint says:

        YOU ARE THE BIGGEST @$$HOLE ON THIS BOARD RIGHT NOW. THE KID IS ONLY ****5 YEARS OLD**** SO WHO ELSE IS TO BLAME? THE BUS DRIVER AND/OR THE BUS ATTENDANT SHOULD HAVE DONE A WALK THROUGH TO MAKE SURE NO CHILDREN OR BELONGINGS WERE LEFT ON THE BUS. THAT’S SUPPOSED TO BE STANDARD PROCEDURE FOR “ANY” VEHICLE CARRYING SEVERAL CHILDREN. NOW GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR @$$ AND GO GET SOME HELP “IDIOT.” YES I SAID IT …. YES I DID!!

  8. Terri Lynch says:

    Thank God he was found safe!

  9. Linda D Bryant says:

    Thank God that he was found alive and un-harmed.!!!!

    However, some folks have some explaining to do.

    1. Tax payer says:

      This family should be billed for all the law enforcement time spent on this child’s behavior as if they called the fire department. Her business should be fined for all the costs until they are in Chapter 7.
