A couple of worried parents called Lewiston police last night to report their eight-year-old boy was missing from his Oxford Street home. Police joined in the search but could not find him.

Two hours after the parents had first notified authorities, they called back, possibly rather chagrined, to state the boy had been located. The youth had been sleeping peacefully in his bedroom all of the time – but sleeping under the bed, not in it.

Lewiston Police Chief Herve Gendreau is urging residents to take pride in their neighborhoods by not putting trash out too early and taking a chance on its being spilled. As part of the city’s neighborhood clean-up campaign, Gendreau said copies of the routes and pick-up days of the Public Works Department’s trash compactors have been distributed to patrol officers to allow them to more strictly enforce city ordinances on trash pick-up.

Lewiston ordinance says: “It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, corporation or legal entity of any kind to place trash or wastes, whether deposited in containers or not, on any public street or sidewalk, before the hour of 6 p.m. … on the day preceding a regularly or specially scheduled trash collection.”
