BH – very glad that he is safe and sound!
And to Joyce Myers: Since the details haven’t been released to the public and are no one’s business except the family’s, maybe you shouldn’t publish your own assumptions that cast the boy in a negative light?

I don't imagine J Myers is the only adult to have those sentiments.
The boy is either showing a little too much selfishness, or even immaturity.
Is a little consideration too much to ask. Cmon
I s'ppose he could have been held captive by drug crazed hoodlums without access to a phone. I suppose that could've happened too? Maybe?
To put his parents and brother through this is selfish and inconsiderate, but how many children haven't worried the daylights out of their parents? Teenage boys do dumb things, and some don't survive. This is one of those rare moments in which one of the lost is returned to his family though, and we'll celebrate that while letting his parents deal with his actions.

B'H, he's home at last. I know it's human nature to speculate and wonder how this could happen, because we want our world to be safe and "knowable". Let's try to put a lid on our rampant curiosity, and give the family time to heal and recover. Playing armchair detective does no one any good, and speculating can only cause the family more trauma. If they decide to share details, that is their decision – and if they don't, then we have to respect their privacy.
