LOWELL, MA - The Lowell Spinners, short season affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, are proud to announce that Edward Vasquez, a missing child whose picture was prominently displayed at LeLacheur Park this season, has been safely located in Springfield, MA.

Vasquez, in addition to three other missing children, had his picture posted on a sign from the BairFind Foundation, an organization dedicated to locating missing children, at LeLacheur Park this season. He was reported missing in April and was found in his hometown of Springfield. The three other missing children from the sign, Skyelee Housman, Derrick DeSouza, and Charlotte Lowell, have all been found as well. This marks the second season in a row that the BairFind Foundation and the Spinners have teamed up in an effort to find missing local children. For more information on the BairFind Foundation, visit

"We could not be happier that all four children pictured in LeLacheur Park have been located and are now safe, sound and reunited with their families," said Spinners' owner Dave Heller. "The more eyes that are looking for a child, the more likely that child will be found, and the support this great community has given to the Bair Foundation and our outstanding law enforcement authorities has been overwhelming -- and has produced real results for four families. This is a grand-slam day for Lowell!"

 "BairFind is proud to partner with the Lowell Spinners, as they joined in the search for Edward Vasquez and three other missing children since opening day." said BairFind founder Dennis Bair "It feels great to know that those children have been located safely this summer. The Spinners have made LeLacheur Park a powerful resource for their community in the search for missing kids."

The Spinners recently concluded their 2016 season with the winningest season in team history and a Stedler Division title. The team will return for the 2017 season in June.
