Gathering of Chiefs 2020 (KMBC)
KANSAS CITY, Missouri (KMBC) — Kansas City Police located and reunited 23 missing children during Wednesday’s Chiefs Kingdom Champions Parade in downtown Kansas City.
That number is down from the approximately 100 children who were lost at some point during the 2020 parade.
On Wednesday, the department successfully reunited a missing child along the Chiefs Super Bowl LVII parade route.
Police tweeted Wednesday morning just after 9:30 that officers are looking for a nine-year-old boy downtown.
The tweet says the nine-year-old is a white male with dirty-blonde hair wearing a Patrick Mahomes No. 15 jersey.
Police asked if attendees saw a child fitting that description and was unaccompanied, notify the nearest officer.
Officers say the boy went missing near Pershing and Main Street. No further details about the nine-year-old have been shared at this time.
Police are high up in downtown KCMO with their helicopter ahead of the big event.
There were 8 reunification stations along the parade route.
