Saving Govi: How the search for Govi started and ended

Relatives of a young boy with Down Syndrome worried about him. After not seeing him for months and always being told he was with his father, family members called authorities.

Govi still runs into moments where bad memories creep back into his mind, but he’s a whole boy.
