Missing Ohio Boy Arrested in TN

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a missing 13-year-old boy
who allegedly made threats against teachers and classmates has been
arrested in Tennessee.

Dispatcher Doris Sowards (SAH'-words) of the Huron County
sheriff's office in Norwalk, about 50 miles west of Cleveland, says
the boy was taken into custody Wednesday night in Dayton, Tenn. She
says he is being held in a juvenile detention center.

Authorities investigating a missing person report filed by his
parents found a journal with the names of 33 classmates and
teachers who were indirectly threatened. Huron County sheriff's
Capt. Ted Patrick says the threats were not specific.

The boy had called a friend Wednesday morning from Walton, Ky.,
just south of Cincinnati, and left a message saying he was fine.
