Oh no. Another bit of info: “Harry was dropped off at his babysitter’s house around 7:15 a.m. A neighbor saw him in the backyard of that home around 9:15 a.m., according to Golner.”

The boy, who's been identified as a 3-year-old from Lowell named Harry, was reported missing from a babysitter's house on Freda Lane about 9:30 a.m., interim Lowell Police Superintendent Barry Golner said. Fifteen minutes earlier, the child was seen playing in the babysitter's backyard.

Between 150 and 180 members of law enforcement and fire departments were involved in the search, checking around homes in Lowell's Pawtucketville neighborhood and in nearby woods, as well as in bodies of water, Golner said. Police were on ATVs, bicycles and horseback; they were also using K-9s and drones to find Harry.

"There's an enormous amount of assets that have been amassed to help look for and find this child, and we're going to continue those efforts until we do find the child," he said

"As residents come home from work…take a look very, very thoroughly through your vehicles that may have been there, through your sheds, through your window wells, through your houses," said Sudbury Police Chief Scott Nix, who was helping to lead the search.

He described the boy's family as concerned.

"God forbid, if he crossed the street and went straight down the hill, that’s the Merrimack River right there," Colleen James said. "There are so many awful scenarios that are going through my mind, especially being a mom."

Matt Ray said, "I can’t imagine a 3-year-old making it through those woods too far, so hopefully, if he is out there, he is not far and they can find him. But it’s scary because you don’t want him to be hurt or just even alone in the woods."

Aerial footage showed an array of first responders assembled in Lowell, with dozens of sheriff's officials lined up appearing to receive instructions, police vehicles collected near a home and a fire rescue vehicle near a pond.

Do any of the neighbors have dogs or animals that could excite the little guy? How close to water is he? I hate this. Please be playing a really good game of hide and seek and not hurt little Harry. Sending all the positive vibes to this little man and his family.

UPDATE: Lowell police are now asking Lowell residents to thoroughly check their backyard for a missing 3-year-old named Harry who has been missing since this morning. https://trib.al/Fy9d9Or

Officials received a report at 9:30 a.m. that the boy, named Harry, was missing from his babysitter's backyard at 37 Freda Lane in the Pawtucketville neighborhood. The boy as dropped off at the babysitter's home just after 7:15 a.m.

"We "We suspect nothing more than a missing or lost child, and the child just walked away," said Lowell Police Chief Barry Golner, adding, "There is nothing to indicate any foul play."

"He's active. He likes going outside. When he's at home, he goes to the yard and plays. He's a healthy kid but he can't speak. He's trying to learn how to speak but he can't talk," the boy's father said by phone.

I found the house on google maps. There is a swimming pool in the backyard surrounded by what looks like a chain link fence which a child that age could climb. That pool was probably checked right away but I wonder about neighbors' pools?
