Just heard part of the story from a coworker who is friends with the family. The youngster needs to get his ass beat.

Yes that seems to be coming out, but you think that changes the way his parents felt while he wasn't home and they couldn't find him?

I can tell you for certain, that it doesn't change it one bit. Especially after a nearby property owner spotted him lurking around his large pond, asked him what he was up to, spooked him, and he jumped into said pond, swam across it to the opposite property line and took off running soaking wet in 40F weather, and in the process leaving behind his backpack...

I honestly don't know what happens next. With the amount of resources that MSP consumed searching for him, (helicopter two nights comes to mind, plus canine units, etc, etc.) it would not surprise me to see some sort of warrant/petition issued that puts him "into the system" for some sort of psych/counseling.

I seriously hope he gets some sort of help. He caused a lot of heartache, and grief.

He should have to re-pay what was spent looking for him in the form of community service, perhaps for the entire summer. He may think twice about running away next time after that.

I'm glad you have figured out the perfect way to teach him a lesson...
You have no idea what caused him to run away . What his home life is truly like. I could care less how many tax dollars were used in finding him.

I wondered why the Helicopter was flying so low and around here last night. It flew down 23 a few times and then that was it.

I do care how much money was wasted...there is a huge difference between "missing" as in lost, stolen, abducted, injured, whatever, as opposed to to a run away...there are ways to handle things and if this child had a deplorable home life the overzealous DHS in this State would have no issues to snatch this boy up.

Agreed.

Junior better figure another way besides running from problems.

Probably true. But in today's passive society, the parents can't lift a hand against the kid without needing to have parenting counseling. Total bullshit in my opinion.

I agree with Hancho on the costs. The family needs to deal with a run away, not the state.

It was a rhetorical question.


@hancho and Whiterhino....you guys both mean to tell me that when you were 12 years old and your parents did something that you felt was unfair you never once thought you'd runaway and teach them a lesson?

I think almost everyone I know packed up and ran away at least once....I mean it may have just been down the street on my bike for the afternoon, or something as stupid as that, and I get that this kid took it WAY further....but...I'm fairly certain the idea at least crossed your mind once or twice.

And that doesn't change the way his parents felt while he was missing...or at least I wouldnt htink that it does.

Clearly if the kid has ran away more than once some sort of action needs to be taken on both sides of the spectrum, hopefully the family can get that help.

Yeah, Amen to this..........

I'd have gotten the Razor Strap, had I pulled anything like this. Then I would have spent the next two months cleaning out the cattle stalls with a pitch fork, and shovel, instead of getting to use the tractor.

Our tax dollars are wasted everyday at least in this case they were wasted returning a child to his family. I hope the family gets it right this time.

No, I never ran away. I can't say why, I just never did. My point of agreeing with Hancho is that from the get go, this did not appear to be an abduction. Moreso, a kid fighting with his parents. Do we really need dogs and helicopters out because a 12 year old kid didn't come home on time?

If you're telling me you never once left the house because you were pissed at your parents for something even if it was just to go to a a friends or the tree fort or wherever they couldn't find you for a bit I am calling bullshit.

Did your daughters ever disappear on you? Did they ever leave with out you knowing where they were or if they were safe? Maybe they didn't but if they did would you have called the police?

How did it not appear like an abduction? The only thing that I read was that a 12 year old was missing, it wasn't reported that he ran away, or that he was abducted, it just said he was missing. To me it didn't appear like, or not like an abduction.

Did I? Not that I can remember. Nothing stands out. Call bullshit if you want but I can't give you a better answer. I can tell you that I would have caught shit for it if I did.
My daughters? Nope, the first time I had an issue with my daughter where she left for a couple days she was 18 or 19 years old. No, we never called the police. We contacted her friends, who a couple were covering for her but we basically said if you hear from her, we want to talk. I knew why and when she left and realized that it would work out. Did either of my kids sneak out? Maybe. But I can't think of a time where they ran away. Threaten? Yes. I offered to help pack their bags.

Now, I realize I am talking about a 19 year old young adult and not a 12 year old punk kid. But, I also have to believe that he didn't just up and run away. I suspect the parents had a pretty good idea, especially since ryebread said he has gone missing before. This is not the first time so it should not be a panic for the parents.

Call the police? yes
Call out every resourse right away? Not so sure

I'm sure that the parents of this kid and every other problem child out there wished there was a silver bullet like an ass beating or heafty fine to solve their problems. If only it was that simple.
