Massachusetts State Police Media Release – 06112015 – State Police K-9 Locates Missing Nantucket Teen

At about 8:30 a.m. today, Nantucket Police requested assistance in the search for a 15-year-old boy who had been missing since the prior evening.  Additionally, there were concerns that the boy might harm himself.  Sergeant John Moran and Trooper Kevin Bates of the State Police barracks in Nantucket assisted members of the Nantucket Police Department in searching several wooded areas on the island.  With no results from those efforts, a request was made for a K-9 and helicopter to assist in the search.  Lieutenant Todd Cambra and K-9 “Diego” of the Massachusetts State Police boarded a State Police helicopter in Plymouth and flew to Nantucket.  After acquiring a scent at the last known location of the teen, Lieutenant Cambra and K-9 Diego subsequently located the boy hiding in a shed.  He was found to be in good condition and arrangements were made for his safe return home.
