9yrs old and he weighs 110 pounds? WOW! That's 50 pounds over the average weight for a 9 year old. He must have helped clean up the Oreo spill on I-80 the other day.

other news report said he was bipolar and went missing twice before. I wonder if he walked out the house alone at 9pm or disappeared after he was left playing by himself in front of that house.

anyway, i hope they find him....again.

You must really be proud of yourself. Did you call all your friends around the computer to read your comment you loser?

no matter the reson he is gone, I pray for his quick return and for his family and friends to be strong and have faith that he will come home unharmed.

Did you miss the part that said he was 5 ft Tall, that's not that big for that height. Maybe he's just a big kid.

I agree. What world do you live in? Check the growth charts. A 9 year old who weighs 60 lbs (according to you, the average weight of a 9 year old) should only be 38 inches tall - that's a little over 3 feet, not the 5 that this boy is.

There is a picture on the front page of the NBC 5. But once you click on the story for some reason the picture does not carry over. I just hope the little boy is okay.

Cal - I agree with you. And besides does it really matter that he may be a big kid. The point is that he is missing.

Mike - Who cares that he is a big kid. Really grow up. The point of it is the boy is missing and needs to be brought back to his family safely.

If you post a story about a missing child, why not put his picture up for people to help find him?
