Cascades / Eastern Loudoun Alert (Updated: found!)

I have received an alert from a couple of sources that there’s a missing boy from the Cascades area of Sterling.

His name is Alex Richmond. According to the information I’ve received he’s 12 years old, 5′ 5″, about 130 pounds. Last seen Sunday evening, 22 November, outside his Cascades home at around dusk. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and brown hiking boots. If you see him, you are asked to contact the Loudoun Sheriff’s Office at 703.777.1021 or call 703.404.8538

The agency received information from a citizen regarding his possible whereabouts. A Loudoun Sheriff’s Deputy located Alex safe and sound.

Thanks, everyone.



  1. I have to wonder if Alex’s parents are divorced. Might this be a parental abduction? I ask because it seems it would be fairly difficult to grab a child of that size and more likely that he went willingly.

    Perhaps just wishful thinking on my part…………

  2. Looks like a matter of his walking away on his own, although I don’t have any details. Bottom line: someone called the LCSO and they located him safe and sound.

  3. Thanks for posting this Ric.

    My daughter has a class with Alex and I think every kid at Riverbend was worried today. Thankfully he is safe.
