Massachusetts State Police Air Wing locates two missing girls in woods



The Massachusetts State Police Air Wing was once again a valuable asset to public safety as it helped locate two missing children.

According to Dave Procopio of Massachusetts State Police, yesterday afternoon, Massachusetts State Police Air Wing helicopter Air 4, crewed by Troopers John Pina and Justin Grigg, responded to Dedham to assist local police and MSP K9 teams in the search for two 14-year-old girls who had walked away from a care facility.

The search continued into the evening and at approximately 7:30 p.m., the MSP flight crew, utilizing Air 4’s Forward Looking Infrared Camera, observed two heat signatures in some nearby woods. The flight crew directed K9 teams and Dedham Officers to the girls’ location.

The Dedham Fire Department responded to evaluate the girls’ conditions and made the decision to transport them to a local hospital.

The State Police Air Wing is a valuable asset to public safety agencies across Massachusetts in missing persons searches and numerous other types of missions.
