The Lancaster County Sheriff’s office continues to negotiate for reimbursement from the state for enforcement at state recreation areas in the county. Sheriff Terry Wagner tells us they expect their work load to pick up with alcohol consumption now being permitted at state recreation areas. Sheriff Wagner says in the meantime they continue to respond to emergency calls.
“They were called this past weekend when a two year old boy was reported missing from his parents camp site.”
Some searchers went into the lake, fearing the boy had drowned. About 30 minutes later, a man driving down a road south of the lake found the toddler. The Hampton couple were cited on suspicion of child neglect.
