On Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 5:20 p.m. troopers received a report for Ulster County 911 for a missing child missing from Lucas Avenue in the town of Rochester. Responding troopers were advised that the young child was swimming in the Rondout Creek with some other children. The other children reported that the young child was walking along the side of the creek when they lost sight of him. A command post was established with Accord Fire and EMS. State Police Underwater Recovery Team (URT) and a state police drone were also deployed to the area.  The young child was located by patrols in a wooded area along the creek, downstream from where he went missing. The child was evaluated by Kerhonkson-Accord First Aid and determined to be in good health and reunited with his mother. State Police were assisted by New York State Department of Environmental Conversation (NYDEC).
