White County student located safely after getting off at the wrong bus stop

By Dean Dyer WRWH Radio
CLEVELAND - White County officials report a happy ending to an incident involving a third grade student at White County Intermediate School. The student was placed on the wrong bus and got off at the wrong location late Tuesday and was the object of a small search.<br /> <br /> White County School Superintend Dr. Jeff Wilson said this was the first time that the student had attended the 21st Century Program at the school and there was confusion about where she was to be dropped off, because of similar street names. <br /> <br /> Wilson said school officials, as per procedure, contacted the student's parents before the student was dropped off. The father told officials that the mother was in the home to go ahead and let the child off the bus, not realizing it was at the wrong location. <br /> <br /> The student was let off the bus on Russell Street in the city of Cleveland, but she should have gotten off the bus at Russell Drive in the County. <br /> <br /> Cleveland Police Chief John Foster said they received the call about the child at 6:20 p.m. and about an hour later they learned the child was safe at home. Foster explained the child realized that she was not at the right location, so she walked to a house near Cleveland City Park and knocked on the door.<br /> <br /> Foster said a man at the house helped the girl get in contact with her parents and even fed her supper while she was waiting on the parents to arrive. Chief Foster said during search residents in the area of Russell and Dixon Streets helped them search.<br /> <br /> Dr. Wilson said they are currently reviewing their procedures to make sure a situation like this doesn't happen again.
