The Treasure Coast Guardian Angels were presented with Citizen Appreciation Awards

The Treasure Coast Guardian Angels were presented with Citizen Appreciation Awards by the Ft.Pierce Police department on Oct. 15, 2012.

The back story as told by Mark Peterson: On September 24th the Guardian Angels received a call about two missing runaways in the Ft. Pierce area. The case was high priority because one of the teens had written a suicide note (they ran away because they were told they couldn't see each other anymore). As soon as we heard about the situation myself and Ned "Preacher" Childress geared up and hit the streets to search for the two runaways. We patrolled the neighborhood for 3 days and nights following each and every lead that we had gotten. We got close on the second day as we were following up on tips from members of the community, we received word that they might be hiding out in an abandoned house in the neighborhood. We went and checked out the house but found nothing so we left that location to follow up on another lead, when that lead didn't pan out we decided to go back to the abandoned house. This time as I circled the perimeter of the property I noticed movement inside the house, as my partner and I went around the house we observed the teens leaving through the back yard, we gave chase but lost them in the neighborhood.

The following day we received a tip from someone who said they knew where the teens would be later that evening. This tip came from the boy's sister who told us that the pair was coming to her house that night because they thought they would be spending the night there. We convinced the sister that the best thing she could do was talk the two into turning themselves in to us, which they ultimately agreed to do. When we got the call that they were at the sister's house we immediately went there and spoke to the teens. We told them exactly what was going to happen and what we needed them to do once the police arrived, they agreed to comply. At this point we notified the lead Detective that we had the teens in custody and then we called 911 to have officers dispatched to our location to transport the two teens.

The male was taken to a juvenile detention facility because he had bench warrants out on him, the female was taken to the hospital for a mandatory 72 hours of observation because she had written the suicide note. The following day we went to court to show support for the young man, the defense attorney brought it to the judges attention that we were responsible for bringing the teens in to police custody and that we would like an opportunity to mentor these young people in the hopes of a better future for them. The judge also took a moment to recognize us in the courtroom and thanked us for our part in helping the Ft.Pierce PD close the case.

Three Awards were handed out one to myself one to Ned Chidress and on to the Treasure Coast chapter which was accepted by Steve Horton.
