ok, I'm VERY glad that they found him, but where's all the info on this SCUM who took him? It says in the article that the boy is with detectives, but it doesn't say a WORD about the criminal. Where is HIS pic?
There is no penalty harsh enough for creatures like him. You can't call those kind people or human. They feed off the bottom of the scum layer.
They don't have a pic of him here because they don't know who he is... thought that was obvious...

The Sentinel is notorious for it's LACK of information. Could they not take descriptions from those who were there to do some kind of sketch at least?

I am so glad he was found safe and sound. When I heard the report on the radio this morning I was watching every pickup with that discription. Even thow I live in Kissimmee you never know where they'll go. So I was watching and worring about him all day. And I just saw it on the internet and so relieved he was found. God Bless you.

something has to be done about all these sex affenders! I was checking on sex offenders in my area and there are 52 right around me and that scares the shit out of me for my child. We need to find a way permently to get rid of them that they are never around society again!!!!!

Why is everybody assuming this guy is a sex offender?

At 13, we can agree this kid knows how to get into ADULT chat rooms online. We can also agree he knows how to talk real, shall I say, enticing to strangers.

What about this case, does anybody here know what YOUTUBE is? There are a lot of kids that give out email addresses & such with some really adult themed home made video clips.

I think there is a bit more going on than we know right now. Since this kid is a minor, everybody feels sorry for him & wants to stick up for him.

How many of you (That have kids) actually lock your computers when you are not watching your kids online? Do you watch their emails & chats? Ever keep an eye on their text messages on their cell phones?

Parents are responsible for their kids, not society.

Watch me get flamed for this one.

The type of predatores need to be put to death once they are caught. No chance to hurt anyone else and society becomes somewhat safer. Liberal laws have caused theses problems to only worsen. The next time one of these offenders is released, the judge or parole board should be accountable for the actions of the person they release back on us.

You obviously don't have enough facts or you would not make the comments you made. The local news reported that the other students at the bus stop who witnessed the abduction heard the child say "sir, I don't know you" as he was kidnapped. The kid was at a school bus stop, not parading around at night at a massage parlor. I don't know what incites your sordid response, but maybe to excuse yourself for extreme behaviour you resort to to spy on your kids? Your cynicism is misplaced.

Parents should be responsible, but are you also saying that the adult is not at fault? There is something wrong with an adult that meets with a child. The moral decay of society seems to be the real problem.

Ok - your flamed, yes parents need to watch their kids. But this is about a kidnapping- not taking the boy out for lunch and ice cream

Thank God Clay escaped and returned home safe to his family! Regards the punk coward who points a gun at children, I believe if it is known one commited such a crime upon a child under no circumstances should the hard earned tax dollars of law abiding citizens be invested to advocate or sustain one more day of their miserable life on our planet. I'll dumb it down, firing squad without blind fold is a fitting end to this case.

Hi Brian,

You are talking about that 14 year old girl up in Niagara Falls that paid a total stranger to kidnap her in front of her friends because she wanted attention. She ended up going to jail for false police reports & spent some time in a mental hospital.

Do you expect anything else from this generation where kids are strangling themselves & calling it a game?

I find it odd this kid was only one wearing a high school jacket. Sounds like he wanted to stand out in a crowd on purpose.

Have a good one.

yea i hope they find him too, but no need to kill the guy, thats not gonna teach him a lesson...i say make him suffer while he has consienceness...so that he can regret what he did and never do it again. if they kill him, he wont know that he's dead. thats just a temporary suffering for him...and long time suffering for his family.
This guy is sick in the head nothing we do will "teach him a lesson" get him off the streets and don't put him in prison they already over crowed the best thing we can do is give him the chair...its better for us not to have to worry then to try and teach him anything
