The search

CBS 8’s Abbie Alford scoured East County to see if she could find some happiness.

Lakeside and Santee didn’t have any available but on the McDonald’s app users can search for the meals by location and schedule an order.

At the McDonald’s on North Second Street in El Cajon they had the adult happy meals but not the limited happy meal box.
