FALLEN OFFICER
Water safety officer who died in 1972 remembered during Frankfort ceremony

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


A Kentucky State Police water patrol officer who died more than 40 years ago searching for two missing teenagers in Frankfort has been remembered during a ceremony at the agency's headquarters.

State police Commissioner Rodney Brewer presented a flag to Roy Childs of Frankfort on Monday in memory of his father, David Thomas Childs. David Thomas Childs died with Trooper James McNeely in April 1972 as they searched for two Louisville teenagers reported missing on a canoe trip.

The officers' boat was swept over the Lock 4 dam in Frankfort by a swift current. The missing teens were eventually found unhurt.

State police assumed responsibility for enforcing boating safety laws in 1968. That was transferred to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet in November 1972.
