I initially had my suspicions. But I've since done some research and discovered that apparently this scout came up missing only 15 miles from where last year's scout came up missing. Now I'm beginning to wonder. My own 12 year old son left this morning for scout camp near Bear Lake, Utah. Although that's nowhere near the other two camps, if there's a serial abductor on the loose, parents such as myself have reason to be concerned.
I taught my own son that is he ever got separated from the group and didn't know where he was, that he was to stay put and not try to walk out. That's good advice for a lost scout, but is completely inapplicable to an abducted scout.
