I was very pleased to read the letter from Mr. Vincent Hansen describing his 3-year-old daughter, Sara, disappearing at the Farmers Market and subsequently being found by security.
The security staff was actually El Centro Police Explorers assigned to work the Farmers Market. The Explorers are led by Sgt. Michael Beltran and we are very proud of the work they do at events held in our community. They are another example of our youth doing something positive with their lives.
I would like to thank Mr. Hansen for bringing this incident to our attention and I want him to know that we have relayed his sentiments to the Explorers involved.
