(Update: WPD reports that “although we have not located Preston’s iPad, we have learned that Preston has a replacement iPad and is doing very well.”)
The Wellesley Police Department is asking for the public’s help to locate a lost iPad that a 3-year-old boy with autism uses to communicate. The device has been shut off, so the find-my-device app isn’t a solution.
The boy and his mother left the iPad behind on Thursday, Aug. 5 shortly before 5pm in the rear of the parking lot of 42 Washington St., across from Glen Road in Lower Falls.
Young Preston uses the iPad and an app called GoTalk to communicate with his parents and the world, as he cannot do so verbally. The 6th generation iPad is black with a blue case and has “Preston” written on it.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Travis Dixon TDixon@wellesleyma.govor Officer Mike Pino MPino@wellesleyma.gov . You can also call the station at 781-235-1212. The goal here is get the iPad back to Preston, no questions asked…
