Stanley from Missouri flattered to visit Vancouver



Central Park — Flat Stanley of St. Joseph, Mo., recently gave the Vancouver police some extra help. Stanley, a paper doll popular in children’s books, was sent along by 10-year-old Wyatt, the great nephew of Carol Record, who volunteers for the Vancouver Police Department’s grass-roots Neighbors On Watch program. Stanley hung out with Record and even went on a ride-along in the Automated License Plate Reader truck — looking for stolen, uninsured or speeding vehicles. Then he was off for more worldwide adventures.
