ANANIEV, September 22, 2010-- A six-year-old boy escaped from a local disabled boys’ home around 5 p.m. this evening.
Authorities were unable to explain the lapse in security, but believe that he must have had outside help.
Multiple witnesses saw the escapee in the company of two foreigners.
There is no information on their present whereabouts, but they were last seen heading north, in the direction of the capital.
One witness heard the escapee say clearly in his native language, “It’s time to go!”
Another witness believed that he saw the two foreigners shaking the dust of Ananiev from their feet as they left.
P.S. Our fugitive is doing fine. His joy is boundless and we are absolutely loving every single minute of these first moments with him in the free world. Everything amazes and delights him. At bedtime he weighed his options: sofa couch or Mama and Papa’s bed. Guess what he chose? Guess where Papa slept? Guess how happy Mama was to nestle down next to her little son with Pooh tucked safely between?
Today we will work on getting his medical and will do two embassy runs. The embassy process to obtain his visa is a two day process. By Friday night we should be finished. Early Saturday morning, we fly out and will arrive at Dulles Airport at 3:45 pm. Anyone who wants to meet our fugitive is welcome to brave the airport traffic and cheer him onto US soil! We will be glad to see some friendly faces after so long.
ALL IS WELL!
