Denver girl, 6, gets lost riding wrong bus

The Denver Post

A Denver girl experienced perhaps every 6-year-old’s nightmare for the first day of school Wednesday: she boarded the wrong bus after school.

Police checked parks, playgrounds, other school bus stops until the little girl in a pink dress and white sandals was found at about 6:45 p.m. about two miles from the Carson Elementary School at 5420 East First Ave. at Augustana Early Learning Center.

A day care center bus driver did not notice the new rider until the end of the route, since it was the first day of school, said police spokeswoman Vicki Ferrari.

“She was a quiet little girl and just sat and didn’t say anything,” Ferrari said.
