I do belive that this is a miracle of someway and it gives me hope that the world is not all bad. Shawn is back after beeing gone for 4 years and beeing in the hands of a kidnapper. This happened in new yourk I belive. Imagine beeing that mom, reciving that call that she has been waiting for for the past 4 years - probably daily... I can nmot imagine the happiness the whole family is feeling now. I hope that they get some time alone from the press to get to know eachother again!

yeah it is a true story. here is some more info. Shawn Hornbeck dissappeared when he was out on his bike in Richwood, Missouri 4 years ago and the parents have been searching for him since. It was just now, when the police folllowed up on a lead on another missing boy that led to a pizzadelivery man named Michael J Devlins and there they found both of the boys. The police has still not released any information about th e4 years that he was missing, what he´s been through and stuff but i do belive that they will. here is a link to the swedish article; http://aftonbladet.se/vss/nyheter/story/0,2789,974925,00.html You probably won´t understand much but there are some pics of the reuinion!

Thanks for the update, and you are right I didn't understand anything other than the date of the article. Gosh, it is great thought when kids are returned to their parents, I am going to try to follow this story to see whether or not he was treated well while in captivity. I requested a friendship link, so that I can keep track of you postings...SS

This is truly a miracle, to find both boys alive. You're right, the families need some time and space away from the media to become adjusted and acquainted again. As happy as they all are, this has to also be a very difficult time. It makes me sick to think of how the boys were treated and what they may have gone through. Keep us posted on what is going on, and what comes out as the story unfolds.

I read today that he had been threathened t his life if he ever told anyone, that´s probably why he have been there so long. he was afraid. he had played witht he neighbours kids and the mom in that family now feel horrible, but she says that the kid seemes scared but that he never once said a word about why!
