35.2. On the application of a person referred to in section 35.1 or of a peace officer, a justice of the peace may authorize in writing the director, any person acting under section 32 or 33 or any peace officer to search for a child and bring him before the director.
The justice of the peace may grant the authorization, subject to such conditions as he may specify therein, if he is satisfied on the basis of an affidavit by the person applying for the authorization that the child’s situation has been brought to the attention of the director or that there is reasonable cause to believe that his security or development is or may be considered to be in danger and that it is necessary to search for him and bring him before the director.
The authorization shall be returned to the justice of the peace who granted it.
