Hoping and praying it's just a teenager wandering off with friends and thinking he doesn't need to let anyone know where he is.

My daughter says that the kids on Twitter have reported he was found at Roberts Field, but of course this isn't confirmed ... it's Twitter. He was not in school today, apparently.

There are a vanishingly small number of "stereotypical" kidnappings in the USA per year - around 115 of them. I am glad to hear he was quickly found.

Give a big thanks to our firefighters. they probably saved his life. i heard it was company 1 that found him....
mira September 22, 2012 at 03:30 PM
I saw a police car on Roberts field searching with some firefighters. It is nice to see our public safety team work together.

He wasn't kidnapped, he ran away. Calm yourselves.
