    Why on earth is this only being posted now, and a search only being started now when he was reported missing 2 WEEKS AGO!?!?!?! That's ridiculous! I hope that this poor boy is found safe and sound! My prayers are with the boy and his family.

      I was wondering the same thing! Two weeks later and we are just hearing about this! Also they could have given some type of details, like the last person he was seen with.

    We should have been looking for this child within an hour of the last time he was seen. The media has to take responsibility for helping lost and runaway children come home. Without the community recognizing his face, we can't help.

    The Media has one goal and one goal only. Make as much money as they can off of anyone
    they can.
