Since it was the CHP with the night googles who spotted her, I think that statement stands alone....They saw her....enough said.

For the Sheriff's spokesperson to dismiss that is unnecessary.

"Lt. Ray Lunny of the Sheriff's Office disagreed, saying that the surrounding darkness of the park would have been sufficient to see the glow stick."

It's Great the CHP had a helicopter and it was available.

I support San Mateo County having a helicopter.

Great the child was found unharmed...Good job everyone involved.
