Posted on July 2, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Larry Pritchett, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Pritchett of 204 Elm Wood Drive, and Cheryl Hudson, 4, of 437 East Seventh Street, had candy and ice cream at police headquarters on June 4, 1953, after Patrolman Prather Walker, right, found them, hand in hand, crying as they ran along the 1100 block of North Limestone. They were brought to the police station until their parents were reached. Turned out young Larry was visiting Cheryl, and they became lost when they tried to follow her older brother to Castlewood pool. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
