On January 1, 2014, Deputies from the Central Station arrested 36- year old Summer Collras for Child Endangerment after she called to report her 10-year old child missing. Collras called the sheriff's department early Wednesday morning to report she arrived home and found her 10-year old child was missing. Deputy R. Cook responded to the call and began the investigation. During the investigation it was determined that Collras left her child with two transients whom she associates with so she could go out to celebrate the New Year. The child was last seen at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening. When Collras arrived home both adults and the child were gone.
During the investigation, deputies learned that Collras provided little to no supervision over the child. Additional resources from the sheriff's department such as a K-9 (bloodhound) unit and the sheriff's helicopter were called in to assist with the search. After approximately 14 hours of being missing, the child was found by deputies on 5th Street as he was walking home. He was unharmed and in good health. He told investigators he stayed the night at a friend's house.
Collras was taken into custody without incident and the 10-year old child was placed in the care of the Department of Children's Services.
Anyone with additional information about this incident is asked to call the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department (Central Station) at 909-387-3545.
