Mother of missing 9-year-old boy in #GeneseeCounty 's #DavisonTownship  talks about son's disappearance, thanks volunteers:http://ow.ly/PcInX
"That's not natural for him," said Humphrey of her son's disappearance, thinking after he went missing Saturday night "He's probably cold, he's probably hungry and he doesn't know where he's at."

Davison Township Police Chief Rick Freeman said the alert was issued Sunday morning, July 5, due to the boy's medical condition and the amount of time he's been missing. "We have no reason to believe, at this point, that he's been abducted," Freeman said.

There could be a few raindrops on #FathersDay  in #GeneseeCounty ,  but they're not expected until the afternoon hours: http://ow.ly/OAwRD 
There is a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms for the area June 21, according to the National Weather Service, but the chance doesn't come mainly until after 5 p.m., so the earlier the better for any outdoor plans.

Have a look inside the Lake Callis Recreation Complex in #GeneseeCounty 's #Davison  Township before it opens this weekend: http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2015/06/take_a_video_tour_of_the_new_l.html 
Both paved parking spaces and a gravel lot fill the southeast corner of the complex, butting up to the walking/biking trail linking Davison and Davison Township via Jack Abernathy Regional Park on the city side.
