Police Search For 5 Missing Kids from Linda Vista Group Home

Five children receiving treatment at a Linda Vista group home for special-needs youths disappeared from the facility this morning, prompting an intensive search by law enforcement personnel that was still underway as of mid-afternoon.

The youngsters, boys and girls ages 10 to 12, were reported missing from the San Diego Center for Children in the 3000 block of Armstrong Street shortly after 9:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.

Officers were searching neighborhoods and open areas around the facility -- which serves children with mental, emotional and behavioral challenges -- by ground, aided by service dogs, and aboard a patrol helicopter, Officer Joshua Hodge said.
