Comb Bush For Child

DEUX RIVIERES (Special) —Bushland near here is being combed by search parties to find a four-year-old boy who has been missing since early Tuesday evening.

Jacques Pilon, son of Mr. and Mrs. Aldebert Pilon of Deux Rivieres was noticed missing from his parents' yard where he had been playing about 7:30 p.m.

The parents had been in Mattawa looking for new living quarters after the Ontario' Department of Highways had purchased their property due to the future relocating of Highway 17.

An older sister of the missing child, 15-year-old Rosanne, had been looking after the boy while her parents were in Mattawa.

Reeve Loretta Boissonneault of Head, Clara and Maria, notified provincial police at Mattawa and Rolphton and the child's parents after it became apparent the child was lost. Mrs. Boissonneault said the child's foot prints led in a westerly direction from the scene. At least 20 local men and police searched the bush, with the aid of a police tracking dog through the night but failed to turn up the missing child.

Army personnel were expected to join the search late this morning and an army helicopter may be pressed into service.
