Missing Boy Who Evaded Searchers Writes Apology

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) -- A 10-year-old Warner Robins boy who spent more than two days dodging police cars, officers and volunteers before he was found has apologized to his school in writing.

Principal Keith Lauritsen says Kit Colburn may deliver the apology over Russell Elementary School's public announcement system or it may be distributed to students. Or the fifth-grader could make an apology at a Warner Robins City Council meeting.

Kit disappeared from school after being sent to the principal's office and hid out of fear. The Telegraph of Macon reports Kit says in the letter he is "very sorry I made that choice and want all my fellow students to know it was wrong."

School officials decided Kit would not return to school until next year, when he starts middle school.

    Fear, I bet. He needed his behind spanked for scaring people. If you don't get it through his head not to do stuff like this then don't be surprised if he does it again.
