My concern is how come the troop leader had not known this little boy was not with the rest of the group. Leads me to think the leader is somewhat irresponsible. You send your kids out to be responsible adults and then something of this magnitude happens. I just thank God he was found alive and in good health.

When I was a Boy Scout years ago we were taught not to go off on our own , guess they do not teach that any more

TRACY - REALLY... To even think that this troop leader was irresponsible is outlandish. Yes - you account for kids constantly on hikes, etc, but sh-t happens - esp. when kids wander off.
Yes - glad he survived, and he probably wont do THAT again, but don't persecute the leader. I'm sure he did all he could.
