Are You Kidding?

Page-a-Day WC - 391 words
National Delurking Week - Day 3

A boy went missing ten years ago and has yet to be found. A sad story, right? You hear about ones just like it all the time unfortunately. Here's the twist in this one. His parents or rather foster parents didn't bother to contact the police ten years ago. That's right. He's been missing all this time and no one has been looking for him. What excuse could they possibly have for their behavior?

The Hermans, his foster parents, stated he had a history have running away. They assumed he found a sibling or his biological parents and went back to them. Sounds like a reasonable explanation to me. NOT!!!

It doesn't matter if he had a history of running away, which hasn't been confirmed yet, and wandering back. There's no excuse for not reporting a kid missing especially for ten years. He was just a kid and they were too lazy to care. They live in Kansas where it's against the law to not report your kid missing as it should be. I hope they do get their asses thrown in jail. What the hell were they thinking?

Keep Adam in your thoughts and hope he is still alive and well.

Sounds fishy to me. I would definitely press the Hermans for more information regarding the boy's disappearance.

You're telling me. I would also lock them up and throw away the key.
