Man honored for finding missing child

Salinas city resident Victor Worden is congratulated by members of Salinas City Council after being honored Tuesday night for his role in finding a 22-month-old child who was inside a vehicle when it was stolen a couple of weeks ago.

Worden saw a social media posting about the vehicle stolen with the child inside and took it upon himself to go searching for the vehicle. He found the vehicle, called police, and the child was safely returned to his parents.

Worden was also honored by Sen. Anthony Canella at Tuesday night's city council meeting but said that he didn't deserve the recognition and instead credited Salinas resident Laura Mendez, who runs the social media page he saw the posting on.
