Just tuned into FNC. They're saying nothing is confirmed, but there's apparently radio messages from "out in the woods" that they've found him. Apparently they'll be "walking him out" momentarily. Hope he's ok. I had a bad feeling he'd been taken by another sicko.

Be Prepared: The Motto of the Boy Scouts of America

Excerpted from page 54, Boy Scout Handbook, 11th ed,
(#33105), copyright 1998 by BSA, ISBN 0-8395-3105-2

Be Prepared.

That's the motto of the Boy Scouts.

"Be prepared for what?" someone once asked Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting,

"Why, for any old thing." said Baden-Powell.

The training you receive in your troop will help you live up to the Scout motto. When someone has an accident, you are prepared because of your first aid instruction. Because of lifesaving practice, you might be able to save a nonswimmer who has fallen into deep water.

But Baden-Powell wasn't thinking just of being ready for emergencies. His idea was that all Scouts should prepare themselves to become productive citizens and to give happiness to other people. He wanted each Scout to be ready in mind and body for any struggles, and to meet with a strong heart whatever challenges might lie ahead.

Be prepared for life - to live happily and without regret, knowing that you have done your best. That's what the Scout motto means.

This is apparently info overheard on radio traffic. Dispatcher said he was found alive. They've called for an ambulance.

I had a bad feeling he'd been taken by another sicko.

Didn't seem likely under circumstances, too remote and many other scouts & leaders in area. Not typical pedophile terrain.

Having said that, anything is possible - very glad to hear family is back together.

Way to go, young man! Way to go!

I haven't read anything yet about the situation. I only heard a news brief that he was still missing, but was dressed warmly enough for the weather. I don't even know how old the boy is or what his rank was.

I hope he is alive (TIC). Our Scout meeting last night had a change of focus because of this.

Well...let's see of Coach Roy at NC can get this youngster some tickets to the Sweet 16. He seems quite a basketball fan and NC seems to be his team.

I was afraid he'd been taken by a mountain lion. That has happened, even here in the East. How could that little child survive two nights in the woods? God is wonderful and the boy's BSA training must have been great. His Scoutmaster must have done a good job with him.

Imagine, only imagine what his parents have been through and how great their joy and thanks must be now. Sometimes God likes us to see that He can still be with us and work miracles.

8:25 CA time, CNN Headline News is still saying they haven't found him but regular CNN says they did. Now you know where not to go for breaking news.

He is 12. I read his rank the other day but don't remember. It wasn't pueblo or "rookie." He had been in the Boy Scouts for a year.

Thank God for this good news. But I heard an odd thing this morning on the radio news that the youngster supposedly is ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and because of this, got restless and wandered away from the group. Anyone else hear this too?

I was worried that the poor boy had been accosted by the scout leader ( what a crazy world that I would even think that) I am so thankful he is allright. I have a 12 yr. old grandson and can't help but think how scared he would be.

Thank You Lord
