Police Believe Missing Ohio Boy Is In Kentucky

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in northern Ohio are looking for a missing 13-year-old boy who they say made threats against several faculty members and students at his school and may have a rifle.

Norwalk Catholic School, where the boy is a student, canceled classes Wednesday as a safety precaution. But school president Walter
Klimaski said authorities told him they believed the boy was somewhere between Cincinnati and Louisville, Kentucky. The school plans to resume classes Thursday.

The Huron County sheriff's office in Norwalk say they think the boy took a .22 caliber rifle that's gone missing from his home. Police also say the boy possibly took a white pickup truck from near his suburban Norwalk home.

Authorities say the boy kept a diary. It was not immediately clear if the threats were made in the journal.
