Fundraising bake sale to help find Hernandez

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Two weeks after Lucas Hernandez was last reported seen, the community continues to pour resources into his finding the missing boy.

A bake sale at the Keeper of the Plains on Saturday helped raise $823.00 that is to be given to the Wichita Crime Commission for a reward for information that leads to the return of Hernandez.

“We did have a big crowd come out here, so thank you for your donations and coming out to support the cause,” said Alexandria Rodriguez during a live stream.

Rodriquez helped create the bake sale after she said she felt compelled to help locate Hernandez.

“I felt like I could do more, I could help out more than what I was. So I decided to ask around for volunteers to help me do this; we brought it together and it was a success,” she said.

“It makes me feel good to help out,” said Christina Crites of Lyons, Kansas. “[I hope] that they can find him and bring him home.”

Lucas went missing from his southeast Wichita home February 17th. Officers arrested his step-mother Emily Glass for child endangerment.
