My prayers to the family and this little boy. I can not imagine what the family is going through. God bring him back safe and sound.

Wolf's interview of the family on the Larry King Show was the worst interview I have ever seen. He portrayed the family as being dishonest and having a hidden agenda and insinuated that there was something sinister involved here. Most of his questions were an insult to the intelligence of the average viewer. It must be hard to kill so much time to try to make something out of nothing. Wolf always seems to embellish on things and and constantly misunderstands information and then distorts the facts., When he first reported on this story he made several errors. It's sad that he has to sensationalize the news. I finally had to turn to our local news media to get factual information on this event. I'm sure that this story will be milked for all it's worth. It should be good for at least three or four days,
