Grateful beyond words

Earlier this week our granddaughter flew overseas to a foreign country for a college level exchange program through Northwestern University. We could not locate her after her arrival. After numerous contacts overseas, with little success, we contacted our local police here in Princeton.

The Princeton Police Department arrived at our home within minutes and had the FBI, a Federal Aviation Marshal and Homeland Security contacted. Within an hour they had located our granddaughter in the foreign country and verified her safety.

Not only are we grateful and thankful beyond words, we are totally impressed by the officer’s command of the situation and ability to reach out to the appropriate authorities both here are abroad.

We wish to thank the Princeton Police Department from the bottom of our hearts.

Brian and Jill Husted
