Missing Scout Found Alive

He spent the night at a hospital, but Utah authorities say an eleven-year-old who had been missing for four days is in good health. Brennan Hawkins was found Tuesday near a lake -- about five miles from the Boy Scout camp where he was last seen on Friday.  

Sheriff Dave Edmunds says Brennan was "a little dehydrated" and "a little weak" -- but is otherwise in good health. Edmunds says the boy was "extremely hungry." But he says after he'd eaten, and after he drank a lot of water, he wanted to play a video game on the cell-phone of one of the rescuers.

The sheriff says searchers couldn't believe their eyes when they found the missing child.

The boy's uncle, Bob Hawkins, says, "We're all thrilled." He says it's "excellent news.”
