While many people were either getting ready for Yom Tov, or others planning their last short Chol Hamoed outings, dozens of members of Flatbush Shomrim were busy searching for a missing person – and made a tremendous Kiddush Hashem in the process.
Shomrim received the call on their hotline for the missing person, Thursday morning, and along with the NYPD, launched an early-morning search for the 82-year-old alzheimer’s patient that went missing in the area of Avenue U and East 4 Street.
The missing person was not a member of the Jewish community, but that makes no difference to Shomrim, who treated this missing person with the same sense of urgency as if this were a Jewish person.
Shomrim volunteers canvassed the area for nearly two hours, while nervous family members assisted the NYPD and Shomrim with any details they could.
Shomrim worked diligently as they recovered security camera footage from multiple cameras in the area, as they worked frantically to track her movement.
Thankfully, that paid off, and she was located by the NYPD and Shomrim, and reunited with her family, who could not stop thanking Shomrim for their outstanding work.
Boro Park Shomrim volunteers assisted in this search as well.
Just an incredible Kiddush Hashem – see the video below!
