At the scene of a search for a missing college student, reporter Judy Le dashed off this tweet:

With @TheTomGeorge in Cochran searching for 19yo Jmaal Keyes.

She included the below picture. Smiles, everyone.

So kind of them to lend a hand “searching.”

Pro Tip: That might be OK at a craft fair. But at a hunt for a missing kid? No way.
