    Very worried about this little sweetie when I read "nearby pond".

    I hope he's just frightened by the storms and hiding out somewhere safe. :please:

    I've got friends in the area. The one I was able to get in touch with said it's a massive search with police from surrounding towns, neighbors, etc. Weather should be cooperating the rest of the evening.

    I sure hope he's found a hiding spot to get out of the weather.

    This is 15 Miles from where I live. Friends are reporting a massive search is underway with huge police, firefighter and first responder presence.

    Local police are asking all area residents to go in their homes at 9:00 pm so they can use an infrared camera to search from helicopters.

    I'm so thankful that they seem to be using every resource available! This is just terrifying. Precious little one. :(

    Happening now in #BrownsburgIN: first responders have a stretcher out by the enclosed pond off Watercress Way. Crowd forming across water.

    I am so hoping that he is just hiding, we had severe thunderstorms and very heavy rain in the area this afternoon.

    i am worried though because there are retention ponds in the area.

    Media update. Shalom has not been found. They are asking everyone to go inside so they can use thermal imaging, as IceIce9 said.

    There needs to be a review of these types of ponds. If a resident has a swimming pool, there needs to be a fence or a gate but if the city puts in a pond, no fencing, no gate.

    Residents should be checking their yards, back yards, sheds, etc. Keep away from the ponds OK but citizens need to keep their eyes and ears open. Does Shalom make any sounds (happy cries or meltdown cries?)
