Post Office employee credited with finding missing boy

Jourdano Delgado

A United State Postal Service employee is being credited with tracking down a missing boy.

Jourdano Delgado, 7, walked away from home in the area of Lansing and Brady Streets in Chesaning on Aug. 9 about noon.

About 2:30 p.m., an alert mail carrier - Beverly Kosin - said she was delivering certified mail to a house on Clark Street when the boy knocked on the window from the inside.

"There was this little boy with the orange shirt and the red pants and I said this is the little boy they're looking for. And I said to him 'Are you OK?' through the window and then he backed up," Kosin said.

She called the police and the boy was found unharmed.

"It was a bad situation that turned out really good," Kosin said. "I was just happy, just happy."

The boy had wandered into the unlocked home on his own.

Saginaw County Sheriff Bill Federspiel said this is the second time in the last week-and-a-half that the boy has gone missing.

"What if he would've walked into that house and there was a dangerous dog inside minding its own business and he was attacked? Or who knows what could happen," Federspiel said.

Child Protective Services has been contacted, Federspiel said.

"Obviously that's not normal behavior. So we're going to be providing some follow up with some other agencies that can possibly help her," Federspiel said.

Jourdano's mother said she is grateful for everyone who helped search for him.
